Andrea Zonneveld is one of eleven Carnegie Mellon University undergraduate students to be named recipients of Milton and Cynthia Friedman fellowships and who will spend their summer as interns in Washington, D.C. Grants of up to $3,000 were awarded to the students to support unpaid and underpaid policy-related internships in the nation's capital.

The Milton and Cynthia Friedman fellowships, available to students in all majors, were endowed in 1999 by Carnegie Mellon Trustee Cynthia Friedman in memory of her husband, Milton (E'47, '49). The fellowships are designed to foster significant work experiences that complement students' academic course work and assist them as they make career and graduate education decisions.

Zonneveld, a senior biology major from Fayetteville, Ga., is interning with FasterCures.

The program started June 1 and will run for 10 weeks. Students secured housing either on George Washington University's campus or in private apartments. Upon their return to campus in the fall, students will complete an evaluation of their internship and the program, and make a presentation of their summer experience to the fellowship committee.
