Four Department of English Students Win Sutton Internship Awards

By Angela Januzzi

Four students in the Department of English have each received $1,250 through the Marion Mulligan Sutton Internship Award for English/Writing Majors for 2018-19. The Awards are designed to enrich undergraduate education, particularly when these positions are low-paid or unpaid, by providing support for students with summer internships in English and professional writing.

Emma McIntosh, a current senior, is a Dramaturgy major with a Creative Writing minor, will be a Literary Intern with City Theatre in Pittsburgh.

Abigail Salmon, a current senior, is a Professional Writing major and German Studies major with a Linguistics minor, will be a Fall Intern at Autumn House Press in Pittsburgh.

Juliana Schnerr, a current senior, is a Design and Creative Writing major who will be a City Research + Media Content Intern at Pack Up + Go in Pittsburgh.

Marika Yang, a current junior, is a Professional Writing major and Social & Political History major, who will be a Writing and Communications Intern at Carnegie Mellon College of Engineering.

The 2018 Marion Mulligan Sutton Awards are made possible through a generous grant to the English Department provided by Mrs. Sutton, a CMU alumna and her husband Thomas, through Marion Mulligan Sutton, MM 1965, Internship Fund. 

This is the fourteenth year for the Sutton Awards. Students receiving the award in previous years interned with organizations such as the International Strategy & Investment Group (ISI), Simon & Schuster, ABC News, The Women and Girls Foundation of SWPA, the 13th Street Repertory Company, Sinuate Media, WQED Multimedia and the Grameen Foundation.

All winners will also be in touch with the donors, to express how the internships will have supported their professional development and to thank them for making the awards possible.
