GMU Bonner Leader selected as 2022 Bonner Foundation National Summer Intern

Each summer the Bonner Foundation welcomes four to eight motivated, passionate, and talented Bonner summer interns from our network of 65+ Bonner programs. During this ten-week internship, these bright young leaders bring their Bonner Program experience and share it by developing new resources and strategies for the national network. This year, national interns will work on projects in the areas of strategic partnerships, racial justice, the Bonner Alumni Network, and organizing and sharing best practices.

We are delighted to welcome these five exceptional 2022 National Bonner Summer Interns:
