Deadline Extended for Summer Internship at Amnesty International

Applications are still being accepted for the Ullman Award, which provides funding for one undergraduate or graduate student from Ohio University to participate in a summer internship at the Amnesty International office in Washington, D.C.

The Sara Katherine Ullman Memorial Internship was established by the family of the late Sara Ullman, who at the time of her death was a student in the College of Arts & Sciences at Ohio University.  This endowment is designed to enable young persons to express values and interests in human rights and international affairs.
