PHOENIX - The Goldwater Institute received today a generous grant of $25,000 to establish the Ronald Reagan Fellows Program. The gift will allow the Goldwater Institute to provide internships to nine Reagan Fellows annually. Mr. Dean Riesen, sponsor of the new program, stated, "I am honored to present the Goldwater Institute with this gift. It is a tribute to President Reagan's faith in future generations and will help those generations carry on the great work he began."
The Ronald Reagan Fellows Program will give college students the chance to work and study with policy experts, sharpen professional skills, and train for leadership positions in public policy. The internship program was named in honor of the late President Ronald Reagan, who was the 1995 recipient of the Barry Goldwater Award in recognition of his incomparable leadership and commitment to human freedom.
