WASHINGTON, D.C.— Earlier this year, The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars announced that a $45,000 grant from the New York Life Foundation would support scholarships for up to 12 college and university students in elite, semester-long internships.

Six scholars have been named the summer Diversity Fellows, and are working at government agencies and private for-profit and nonprofit organizations based in Washington, D.C.


The New York Life Foundation Diversity Scholarships target students who would otherwise not be able to participate at The Washington Center, helping to defray their costs while participating in the Center’s programs. Selection is based on an applicant’s academic major and performance, professional interests, letters of recommendation and internship placement.

There are six summer Diversity Scholars with Nathaniel Drowell Jr. from Verona, PA., being one of the exclusive six. Drowell is a business administration major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and earned a placement with the U.S Small Business Administration.
