Ralph W. Voorhees Public Service Fellowships

Ralph W. Voorhees Public Service Fellowships

The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the Voorhees Family have established the Ralph W. Voorhees Public Service Fellowships to honor Ralph W. Voorhees’ long commitment to community service. A 1948 graduate of Rutgers University, Mr. Voorhees was senior vice president for investments at Paine Weber and served as chairman of the boards of United Way of Central New Jersey, Family Counseling Services of Middlesex County, the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and the New Brunswick Cultural Center. He has also been chairman of the board of the Rutgers University Foundation and served on the Rutgers University Foundation’s Board of Overseers. Mr. Voorhees has given generously to Rutgers and also supports Voorhees College, a historically black institution in South Carolina.

For the 2013-14 academic year, up to five (5) undergraduate students from the Rutgers New Brunswick campus, who are dedicated to community service, will be selected to receive Ralph Voorhees Public Service Fellowships. Fellows receive $5000 so they may participate in a credit-bearing community research project with Elijah’s Promise and the New Brunswick Community Food Alliance related to urban agriculture and community food security. Students selected for the fellowship will be required to register for a course during the Fall 2013 semester that will take place on Fridays from 9:50-12:50 at the Bloustein School. Students will do research in partnership with community organizations and will make a public presentation on their work at the end of the Fall semester, and will serve as mentors for future Fellows.

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you should publish more on this topic,
it might not be a taboo subject but usually people do not
talk about such issues. To the next! All the best!!
