Badger Reach: Impactful Summer Internships in Milwaukee, Chicago and the Twin Cities

This 3-year project designs and implements ‘impactful’ UW-Madison summer internships in Milwaukee, Chicago and the Twin Cities. Impactful internships extend and apply student learning to perennial public challenges in the areas of education/social welfare, civic participation/voting, law/human rights, and environment/urban design. Baldwin Wisconsin Idea support provides fellowship funding for 18 half-time student interns each summer who often must forgo other paid opportunities to pursue public-oriented internship work. This project is simultaneously enabled by and positively impacts several intended audiences including students, partner organizations and alumni in each of the three cities.
