It provides stipends for the students’ summer internships at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Bloomberg
Policy studies majors Megan Jones ’11 (Bridgewater, N.J.) and Daniel Stefan ’10 (Havertown, Pa.) are the 2009 recipients of the Caine Scholars Award in Global Leadership, Business, and Policy.
The award, which is the first specifically created for policy studies majors, provides a $5,000 stipend for a summer internship experience. Jones will serve an internship in the International Trade Policy Group at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. Stefan’s internship is with the Global Data Group at Bloomberg LP, the leading global provider of financial news, data, and analytics. He will be based in Princeton, N.J.
The Caine Scholars Award was established in 2008 by Christopher G. Caine ’78, president and CEO of Mercator XXI LLC. Caine is a key adviser to the policy studies program and a founding member of its Alumni Steering Committee. According to Caine, the scholarship is a way of “honoring my father, Anthony Caine ’38, as well as doing what I can to develop the next generation of global U.S. leaders who have an appreciation for public policy and business in a global environment. What better way to achieve these two goals than creating an award at Lafayette that benefits a student majoring in policy studies?”
