Applications are now being accepted for the 2011 Ringer, Ruzicka, Smoke, and Swearer international summer fellowships administered for undergraduates by the Watson Institute for International Studies and the Swearer Center for Public Service.
The Jack Ringer ’52 Summer Fellowship in Southeast Asia is made possible by this Brown alumnus, who served in Burma after graduating. The award provides Brown students with opportunities for research or internships in Southeast Asia.
The Marla Ruzicka International Public Service Fellowship, named after a dedicated human rights activist who died in April 2005, supports a Brown undergraduate who displays the characteristics of compassion, determination, and selflessness in the pursuit of international human rights, post-conflict rehabilitation, or international public service in its most noble spirit, and whose summer plans reflect those traits. This fellowship is supported by Lucinda B. Watson, a member of the Watson Institute Board of Overseers.
The Richard Smoke Fellowships, named in memory of a prominent Watson Institute scholar, are grants available to current Brown undergraduates who are pursuing internships abroad involving research, advocacy, or service on contemporary global problems.
The Swearer Center International Service Fellowship, funded by the Swearer Center for Public Service, supports undergraduates who want to spend the summer pursuing international service work, which can be of the student's own design or can be a pre-existing internship.
The application deadline for these fellowships is Friday, March 11, 2011 by 5 pm (EST).
