Valdivia Earns AUC Presidential Internship

Senior Marnie Valdivia has just been granted a coveted Presidential Internship from The American University in Cairo (AUC). This comes on the heels of her winning a State Department Critical Languages Scholarship earlier in the month.

“These positions are highly sought after and almost always go to Ivy League graduates,” says her advisor, Prof. Chris Taylor. “Marnie is the first Drew student I know of since I’ve been here who has received one of these highly sought after 1-year post-graduate paid internships in Cairo.”

Valdivia will spend the year working with AUC’s Desert Development Center, which explores options for sustainable social and environmental development in the Egyptian desert.
