English Major Eng Selected for Prestigious Writing Internship

Caroline Eng, a junior English major at Fordham, has been selected for the highly competitive Phi Beta Kappa Writing Internship.

Established in 1776, The Phi Beta Kappa Society is both the oldest and most recognized academic honor society in the United States. Its mission is to champion education in the liberal arts and sciences, to recognize academic excellence, and to foster freedom of thought and expression.

Comprised of 286 chapters and over half a million members, the society selects no more than 15 students for its biannual writing internship.

Juniors and seniors who major in the liberal arts or sciences and who belong to a society chapter may apply for the internship. Interns make a five-month commitment to the program and prepare at least six publishable articles for The Key Reporter, the society’s publication for news and alumni relations.

Eng is from Winchester, Massachusetts. In addition to majoring in English, she minors in theater. She has been involved with the Fordham University Emerging Leaders program, with the Fordham University Women’s Choir, and with theatrical productions at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus. After graduation, she wishes to work in the publishing industry.

Eng’s internship begins this month and continues through May.

The English department congratulates her and wishes her luck!
