17 May 2015 Rosenberg Internship Program Announced
May 17, 2015 Brooklyn, NY . . . .The Justus & Karin Rosenberg Foundation today announces the “Rosenberg Student Internship Program.”
The program will provide grants to college and graduate students who accept unpaid or low-paying internships with an organization (NGOs and not-for-profits) whose work aligns with the Foundation’s mission. The grants shall be used to support the recipient’s reasonable living expenses during the course of the internship.
“We are delighted to add to the Internships which we have already funded at Bard College with additional Internships for students from across the country, and beyond. We are eager to support students who want to work with, and learn firsthand from, organizations that combat hatred and antisemitism,” said Justus Rosenberg, president of the Foundation.
The Foundation’s mission is “to support efforts to combat antisemitism and anti-Israel activity on campus, antisemitic hate crimes, Holocaust denial, antisemitic discourse, state-sponsored antisemitism, and other issues that have a direct impact on the growth of hatred and antisemitism.”
Justus Rosenberg is the last surviving member of the Varian Fry group, which rescued hundreds of artists and intellectuals from the Nazis in Vichy France in 1940-41.
The maximum individual grant is $3,000. Students can apply now for internships for the summer of 2015. Information about the program and application materials are available at JKRFOUNDATION.ORG.
