Emerson Fellowship for Washington DC Internship Awarded to Claire Gibby
Claire Gibby ’16 will travel to Washington DC next summer to participate in the Emerson Fellowship, a prestigious public policy internship. She will work with Missouri representatives in Washington and gain experience she needs for her future career in the U.S. intelligence community.
The Emerson Fellowship commemorates the contributions and personal qualities of Congressman Bill Emerson, Westminster Class of ’59, who contributed significantly to the shaping of American public policy over five decades.
This important fellowship is an annual competitive award available only to Westminster College students. It provides a unique opportunity to learn about the political system through direct exposure to public and private sector roles in public policy development.
The Emerson Fellowship is chosen by a national selection committee composed of members and friends of the Emerson family, former Fellows and select Westminster alumni.
Claire is excited to have the opportunity to visit Washington DC for this internship so that she will also have an opportunity to research post grad opportunities. She and her family are from Little Rock, Arkansas, and they are all looking forward to visiting the nation’s capital for the first time. She is pursuing a degree in Political Science and Security Studies.
