The Levine Internship Awards honor the memory of Erwin L. Levine, who was a Skidmore Government Department Professor of American Politics and Law from 1961 until his retirement in 1988.
Through the generosity of his family and friends, the Levine Internship Awards celebrate the life and legacy of a beloved teacher; respected scholar; treasured colleague; and inspired student of the history, theory and practice of American politics and law. These awards are offered on a competitive basis to support Skidmore students who wish to undertake government internships in fields related to the practice of American government, politics and/or law. Skidmore students from any major or minor may apply. Students are not required to apply for academic credit, but proposals must demonstrate the academic aspects of the internship experiences. Students may propose an internship in government, political, or legal offices and must demonstrate appropriate academic preparation. Examples of internship sites include: city, state, or federal government office, federal agencies (e.g., State Department) or international agencies addressing U.S. political and legal issues (e.g., the United Nations), a pressure group lobbying Congress, or a Presidential library with an emphasis on the president's politics.
Awards are given on a competitive basis during the summer.
