Robert B. Menschel Public Service Internship Award
The Robert B. Menschel Public Service Intern Fund, administered by the Shaw Center, was established by Richard and Ronay Menschel to support undergraduate students who are working in the not-for-profit world. The fund supplements the income the students earn, making their internships more competitive with work in the for-profit sector.
In both 2010 and 2011, five students received $1,000 each for such nonprofit internships as Teach For America, Incarnation Youth Council, and Springboard for the Arts. Fifty-two SU students have received Robert B. Menschel Public Service Awards since the first award was given in 2001. The students have worked at a wide range of nonprofits and publics locally, regionally, nationally, and globally.
The Menschel Award provides support for full time matriculated undergraduate students who are working in the not-for-profit world. Applications are accepted during the spring semester.
Applications are currently closed.
