SPEA MPA candidate Andrew Bean was officially recognized as the 2018 Indy Chamber HobNob Policy Intern at a reception following the organization’s “Political Bootcamp” on Thursday.
The internship, which includes a $5,000 stipend from Cripe Architects + Engineers, is awarded annually to a SPEA IUPUI graduate student who is interested public policy and political action and advocacy. The internship was first offered in 2004.
“I was elated and relieved,” Bean said of hearing the news that he had been awarded this year’s internship. “SPEA does a fantastic job of getting these types of opportunities in front of their students.”
