Brogan Scholars Endowed Internship Fund

Tom BroganProfessor Tom Brogan, Ph.D.

Dr. Brogan taught challenging and interactive political science courses at Albright College for 35 years.  Professor Brogan’s goal as an educator was to prepare students for the realities of careers in politics, government, law, education and public service.  To do this he encouraged all students to engage in the real world. As one of the most beloved professors on campus, when he retired in May 2013, many of his former students wanted to honor him in a way that was fitting for his passion and devotion to students.  They chose a program that, to these alumni, captured the essence of how Professor Brogan advised his students: go out there in the real world through internships or volunteerism.  That was the beginning of The Brogan Scholars Endowed Internship Fund.

Brogan Scholars in Policy and Government Program Description

A stipend from the revenue generated by the Brogan Scholars Endowed Internship Fund will be awarded to an exceptional student each year to complete a policy- or government-related internship, including in the judiciary. The internship must be completed for credit, and can take place during the summer or following academic year. For seniors, the internship must be completed the summer immediately following graduation. Internships can be completed locally or nationally and within local, state, or federal government, or another suitable agency/community organization that offers policy or government related (including in the judiciary) internships.  Students within any major may apply.

Links to local, regional, state, and national internships can be found below. The lists below are suggestions for you to locate other opportunities that may match your interests and career goals. If, when you click on the name and it goes directly to the organization’s home page, find the careers page or the internship page for specific information.

In addition to these opportunities, students can choose to intern on Capitol Hill through a program affiliated with McAllister & Quinn LLC. Representatives from McAllister & Quinn will work with the selected student to identify internships that match the student’s career goals. Please be aware of the opportunity to learn more about the connections that McAllister and Quinn have in the Washington, DC area.  This is a rare opportunity to secure an experience “on the hill” that other college students do not have.
