Baruch College Student Receives Jeannette K. Watson Fellowship for NYC-Based Internships and Mentoring
NEW YORK, NY- May 11, 2016 - Baruch College student Sarah Dobrowolski ’18, has been named a recipient of the Jeannette K. Watson Fellowship. The program provides three summer internships with leading non-profit, for-profit, and government organizations, with the third internship in another culture. Fellows experience the expectations and challenges of professional-level work while expanding their personal, cultural, and professional horizons.
“The Watson Fellowship is transformative. I’ve been a fellow for two months and it has already made an immense impact on me,” said Dobrowolski, whose interest in nonprofit work was reaffirmed while researching and interviewing for internship opportunities provided through the prestigious program. “When I found out about the Watson Fellowship, it was made very clear that it’s for students who move outside of their comfort zones. Once I began the application, I have been doing just that. I am eager to continue pushing myself to exceed my own expectations and see how this opens new experiences and insights. I am extremely grateful to the Watson team for its generosity and support.”
Dobrowolski, who is majoring in Industrial/Organizational Psychology in the Zicklin School of Business, will begin her summer internship with the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Human Resources department on June 6.
“I'm absolutely thrilled for the opportunity and I'm eager to see how Industrial/Organizational Psychology plays a role in the museum’s work environment.”
