June 4, 2012-- Congratulations to Adina Appelbaum, Molly Dillon, Danielle Parnass, and Kate Tibone, the four recipients of the Georgetown Public Policy Institute 2012 Internship Fund.

These four GPPI students will intern during the 2012 summer in the public and non-profit sectors. Adina Appelbaum will work as a Policy Advocate Volunteer at Asylum Access Ecuador in Quito, Ecuador. Molly Dillon has accepted an intern position with the Domestic Policy Council at The White House. Danielle Parnass will work at the Congressional Budget Office in the Private Sector Mandates unit. Kate Tibone has accepted a position as a Reproductive Health Consultant at the Asia Pacific Alliance for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Bangkok, Thailand.

The GPPI Internship Fund provides monetary support to students who have accepted unpaid summer internships. Internships must be full-time opportunities for at least eight weeks in duration, and the applicant cannot receive any compensation from the organization or funding from other sources for the internship. Each student will receive $2,500.

“Many rewarding internship opportunities are unpaid and it is important to give our students the opportunity to take advantage of them,” said Jennifer Blanck, Assistant Dean, Career and Alumni Services at GPPI and head of the GPPI Internship Fund Selection Committee. “GPPI is committed to providing financial assistance in support of our students’ career advancement.”
