Mentor Luncheon and CiS Scholarship Award

p1060310p1060288

In June 2011, interns hosted a celebration luncheon for science mentors and graduating interns. At this luncheon, we had delicious food, provided by the academy café, to celebrate the mentors the interns had worked with. These include Academy curators, biologists, and researchers; they received gifts as a token of our appreciation. Most interns spent about a year with their mentors, so this luncheon was a bittersweet moment because it marked the end of our externship. However, at the end of the luncheon, Eric, the manager of the program, presented each of the graduating interns with a certificate and a book that represented their personality. The winners of the CiS Scholarship were also announced at the luncheon! Three of the six graduating interns received scholarships ranging between $1, 000 to $2, 500 to help them pay for college.
