Waving Goodbye to the 2009-10 Jones Scholars

| May 17, 2010

The 2009-10 cohort of Jones Scholars wrapped up their internships at local public schools and education nonprofits just in time for some of them to walk across the stage at Tulane’s commencement ceremony on May 15, 2010. The Jones Scholars Internship Program, which was launched by the Cowen Institute in the Spring of 2008, provides Tulane graduate students with a hands-on experience in public education, while increasing the capacity of the education community in New Orleans. The Scholars support high-impact projects focused on preparing high school students for college, decreasing drop-out rates, and improving overall educational outcomes for students. In return for the work completed by a Jones Scholar over the course of a semester, the Cowen Institute provides a competitive financial stipend of $6,000 to each intern. This program is supported by a generous donation from the Joseph and Eugenie Jones Family Foundation.
