The Watson Fellowship program provides summer internships, professional development opportunities and mentoring for outstanding undergraduate students from select New York City colleges and universities.

The Watson Fellowship is a three-year program that provides Duplessis and Dam with annual funding of $5,500, $6,500 and $7,000 along with a $2,000 Discovery Fund.

“I’ll get the opportunity to bond with 14 other amazing and ambitious individuals in my cohort, and I'll also become part of a lifelong Watson network,” said Dam, an economics major and City College Honors Program student.

This summer Dam will intern at law firm Shearman & Sterling in global mergers and acquisitions. Haitian native Duplessis, international studies major and SEO Scholar, will intern at the Transit Center in communications.
