Congratulations to Social Welfare major Nina White who received a SuccessWorks Internship Fund award to support her work in the Lab for Family Wellbeing & Justice where she is a new intern. The internship fund provides money to undergraduate students completing unpaid internships or who could not take on an internship without financial support.
Students are selected for the award based on their application strength, academic performance, financial need, and the quality of the internship experience.
The Lab for Family Wellbeing and Justice builds “knowledge and solutions for families impacted by incarceration and justice system involvement,” through research, evidence-based practice, and policy development. Assistant Professor Pajarita Charles is the Principle Investigator and the Lab employs several social work students.
