MtA’s receives $1M from The Wilson Foundation to support internships

December 14, 2020

Mount Allison University’s Frank McKenna School of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics has received $1M from The Wilson Foundation. The endowed funds will be used to expand the Wilson Internships program and to support student internships in perpetuity, allowing students to gain hands-on experience and gain connections. “We’ve seen Wilson Interns complete placements as close as Sackville and as far away as Africa,” said MtA Economics Professor Dr. Craig Brett. “These experiences really create a buzz around the program. Students (and faculty) are excited to hear about what their classmates are doing and what projects they are working on as part of their internships.” Mount Allison (NB)
