Hamilton College has awarded AHI Undergraduate Fellow Marta Johnson from Austin, Texas, the Katharine Eckman ’09 Internship for 2011.  The internship was established in memory of Katharine C. Eckman (Hamilton Class ’09) and provides a generous summer stipend for a student interested in advancing his or her interest in politics, government, and public policy.

The stipend will allow Ms. Johnson, a major in both economics and the Classics, to intern at the AHI, where she will help develop programming for 2011-12 on limited government.  She will also prepare to serve as a student leader of a group independent study devoted to the work of Bertrand de Jouvenel, one of the great anti-totalitarian thinkers of the twentieth century.

The AHI congratulates Ms. Johnson on receiving this award and thanks Richard and Susan Eckman, parents of Katharine, for their fortitude and grace in making this educational opportunity available.
