Ralph W. Voorhees Public Service and Civic Engagement Fellowship Programs

The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy hosts the Ralph W. Voorhees Public Service Fellowship Program. The Voorhees family has chosen to honor Ralph W. Voorhees's long commitment to community public service.

A 1948 graduate of Rutgers University, Mr. Voorhees was senior vice president for investments at Paine Weber and served as chair of the boards of the 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 been chair of the Rutgers University Foundation and has served on the Rutgers University Foundation's Board of Overseers. Mr. Voorhees has given generously to Rutgers and has supported Voorhees College, a historically black higher education institution in South Carolina.

Up to five undergraduate students from Rutgers University-New Brunswick, who are dedicated to community service, are selected to receive Ralph Voorhees Public Service Fellowships. Fellows receive a stipend so they may participate in a credit-bearing community research project. Students selected for the fellowship are required to register for a course in the fall semester that will take place at the Bloustein School. Students will do research in partnership with community organizations, will make a public presentation on their work at the end of the fall semester, and will serve as mentors for future fellows.

Students interested in the fellowship apply in the spring semester at http://bloustein.rutgers.edu/undergraduate/voorhees. Questions about the program may be directed to voorheesfellowship@ejb.rutgers.edu.
