Strong/Gault Social Advancement Internship Grant
“My experience at Frontier Group has not changed my career plans, which remain geared towards a life dedicated to the public interest. The experience did, however, provide me with newfound confidence and passion in my own abilities and my own desire to pursue higher education.”
I expected that I would be given small tasks and lead carefully by a staff member towards completing them. To the contrary, on my first day at Frontier Group, my supervisor handed me a list of possible research projects to which I could devote my time, asked me which option I would prefer, let me know what sort of research questions I should pursue, and then showed me to my desk and allowed me the freedom to work completely independently. The project to which I devoted the majority of my attention was the Highway Boondoggles report, which is a report published annually that highlights several highway projects across that nation that are examples of wasteful and unnecessary government spending.
