Three undergraduates will spend the next year pursuing public service projects with $25,000 fellowships from the Stride Rite Charitable Foundation (SRCF).
Amy Leung '00 and roommates Ari M. Lipman '00 and Joseph M. Garland '00 were awarded the prize Monday for their extensive past community service and the quality of their public service project proposals. They will spend the next year working with local non-profit organizations.
Leung will focus on community advocacy and empowerment projects with the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA).
Lipman plans to implement a housing program with the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO) and Garland will work to improve after-school programming with Parents United for Child Care.
"I'm vastly appreciative of this award, because it enables me to do exactly what I want to do," Lipman said.
All three students worked with the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) as undergraduates and plan to pursue careers of public service.
Lipman has worked with the University Lutheran Shelter for three years, where he said he was exposed to the frustrations of the local housing shortage.
"It's an impossible job to find housing for somebody working full time for $6 to $7 an hour," he said.
