L/EARN intern Natasha Ramsey chosen for a Voorhees Fellowship in Public Service
Natasha Ramsey, L/EARN class of 2009 has been selected for the Ralph Voorhees Fellowship Program in Public Service at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers. She is majoring in Public Health with a minor in biological sciences, and is preparing to apply to medical school. A graduate of the New Brunswick Health Sciences and Technology High School, she has been the recipient of several scholarships including the James Dickinson Carr and Edward J. Bloustein Scholars. Ms. Ramsey has been active in varied communities including Diamonds, a mentoring program for girls at the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens, and the Paul Robeson Special Interest Section (a living community at Rutgers). She is a member of the Black Student Union and hopes to eventually create a non-profit organization to serve women of color.

As one of the four undergraduates selected as a 2010-2011 Voorhees Fellows, Ms. Ramsey will receive $5,000 to undertake credit-bearing internships with non-profit or government organizations in areas such as community-based education, public health and public policy. She and the other fellows will meet several times a semester with former New Jersey Governor James Florio to discuss their experience and will make a presentation at the end of the fellowship year in a public forum. If possible, they will help select and mentor future Fellows.
