The students are among the fall 2016 cohort of Kuhn Scholars, an award offered through the Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE) Pre-Graduate Internship Program that supports first-generation and/or economically-disadvantaged college students in their academic pursuits and further enriches their pre-graduate school internship experience. The students each receive a $1,000 stipend made possible by Michael and Alice Kuhn. Read more about the Pre Grad Internship and the IE Kuhn Scholar Awards.
