Katzen Fellowship

Through Chani Katzen ’96, The Katzen-Laufer Family is providing $3000 stipends for Weissman Arts & Sciences and School of Public Affairs undergraduate students who will be working in unpaid internships and/or formal volunteer positions in non-profit, the arts, education, or government organizations. The Katzen Fellowship for the Common Good recipients will be selected on the basis of the student’s genuine potential for future contributions to “the common good.” Preference will be given to students who are not receiving on-going scholarship assistance. (Students receiving government financial aid are eligible to apply.)
