For those in D.C., while longing to be outside might not be such a problem, ending the experience properly might prove more challenging.

We're happy to announce new featured content on our Facebook pageWe've asked public policy interns funded by the Rockefeller Center to provide updates while they are still working.  Our goal is to share tips from our interns, to highlight the organizations that are hosting our interns for learning opportunities outside of the academic classroom, and to shine a spotlight on the students that will become our next generation of leaders.

The first student to be featured in our Facebook Notes section is Daniel Bornstein '14.  Daniel is currently an intern at the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), working on the  Feed the Future initiative.  Daniel's work on global hunger was also recently featured in this LI Herald article.

Reflections of a Rockefeller Center Funded White House Intern: Ariel Murphy '12

“The Rockefeller Center's Internship Funding Program is phenomenal, and has provided me with an unforgettable opportunity to learn more about public policy and gain a better understanding of public service. Financially, it would have been extremely difficult to take part in the White House Internship Program, but through the generosity of the Rockefeller Center, I was able to take a huge step forward in the exploration of my professional and academic interests. As a former First-Year Fellow, I can also say that the Rockefeller Center has really helped to shape my Dartmouth experience.”  – Ariel Murphy ’12, in her internship self-evaluation
