The 2023 cohort was selected from a highly competitive pool of current undergraduate and graduate Georgetown University students
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service at the McCourt School of Public Policy is honored to announce the 2023 cohort of the Alexis and Laurence Pelosi Endowed Internship Fund.
The Fund, established through a $100,000 gift from Alexis and Laurence Pelosi, provides financial support for undergraduate and graduate students at Georgetown pursuing unpaid internships or internships that provide a nominal stipend in the fields of politics, public service or media.
The 2023 cohort and their respective internships includes:
Sophia Chang (SFS‘24) Wargaming Intern, National Defense University Center for Applied Strategic Learning
Andrew Jarocki (MPP’24) Intern, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, Office of International Affairs
Aria Nimmagadda (C’26) Congressional Intern, Office of U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.)
Nadim Oubenali (SFS’25) Intern, U.S. Mission to the United Nations; Intern, U.S. Department of the Treasury
Judy Zhou (SFS’24) Intern, Minority Business Development Agency, U.S. Department of Commerce
“Too many people today feel that politics and public service are too inaccessible to them,” said Mo Elleithee, Executive Director of the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service. “Thanks to the Alexis and Laurence Pelosi Endowed Internship Fund, we’re excited to help break down some of those obstacles for these students. I look forward to seeing what they do with this opportunity.”
The selected awardees will receive $3,000 in funding to support their living expenses, including housing, transportation and food. They will also have access to enrichment opportunities through workshops conducted by professionals in public service.
The Institute of Politics and Public Service hopes to continue providing students with the appropriate tools and resources as they go out into the world and make impactful contributions and explore their own pathways into politics and public service.
