Congratulations to Alyssa Holguin, criminology major, who has been awarded the Fred Harris Internship for Fall 2021!

The Fred Harris Internship was established by the University of New Mexico to allow its students to travel to Washington, DC to learn through direct experience how federal policy is formulated in our nation's capital. The program's objective is to provide academically outstanding undergraduate students who have an interest in public policy the opportunity to participate in public service by observing and contributing to the policy-making process. The internship experience helps students understand the challenges and rewards of public life and gives them opportunities to develop their leadership skills.
