The Syracuse University Alumni Club of Washington, DC awards summer scholarships to undergraduate students interning in the Washington, DC area as part of a degree program. Recipients must be enrolled full time at Syracuse University, demonstrate a financial need and participation in or employment with an organization that will contribute to the recipient's educational or career goals.
For the 16th summer, the Syracuse University Alumni Club of Washington, DC is pleased to provide financial support through its summer scholarship fund to students who are interning in the Capitol region.
This year, due to social distancing measures in effect to protect public health, the alumni club suspended the requirement that an applicant’s summer 2020 internship take place in person in the DC area in order to be considered for funds. We are supporting all students who applied with an award at some level, no matter if their internship is physically here in DC or virtually-hosted out of the DC area. We appreciate the support of generous alumni, friends and other donors who made this impact possible.
Congratulations to our summer 2020 recipients: Mackenzie Mertikas, Miguel Gomez, Ellie Bodker, Camryn Simon, Sofia Donolo and Benah Stiewing.
