The Williams Program for Women in Politics
Available to Athena Scholars in their sophomore and junior years, the Williams Program for Women in Politics enables Athena Scholars interested in a career in politics or public policy to learn from government and policy leaders and organizations in New York, Washington, D.C., their hometown, or state capital. These internships provide Athena Scholars with work experience, mentors and role models that can inspire them to work for the common good, and encourage their own political aspirations. The highly competitive Williams Program offers Scholars a $3,000 stipend and the ability to intern in government agencies and offices, public policy organizations, think tanks, or with elected officials (with the exception of campaigns). Our 2014 summer Williams Fellows have worked at: the New York City Mayor's Office Community Affairs, and the NYC chapter of the National Organization of Women. Previous Williams Fellows have worked at: Reede Street Strategies, World Policy Institute, the Korean Research Institute for Vocational Education & Training, Office of the Mayor - Commission on Women's Issues, the World Policy Institute, and for Senator Kristen Gillibrand.
The Siberstein Non-Profit Leadership Summer Fellowship
Available to Athena Scholars in their sophomore and junior years. The Non-Profit Leadership Summer Fellowship aims to give Athena Scholars an inside look at leadership in non-profit organizations and identify a pool of talented students who aspire to careers in this sector. The Non-Profit Leadership Summer Fellowship hopes to build a unified community through dialogue of shared work experiences, tips, and friendly conversation that can act as a base for participants working in this sector. This competitive Non-Profit Leadership program offers Scholars a $3,000 stipend and the chance to intern at any non-profit organization that focuses on children. In the past, Non-Profit Leadership Fellows 2011 (formerly known as Leadership 18 Fellows) have worked at: United Way, United Cerebral Palsy and the Cooke Institute.
The Athena Harriman Summer Fellowship
Is available for scholars in their junior year. The Athena Center for Leadership Studies, in collaboration with the Harriman Institute at Columbia University, established a summer fellowship program that will enable Athena Scholars interested in the Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian region to learn from local women leaders in private, non-profit, and/or governmental agencies. This particular partnership offered students a more nuanced internship experience focused on women’s leadership. Fellowships are awarded for a maximum of $4,000; it is expected that Fellows living in the region for the entire summer will receive that maximum amount.
