Class of 2016
Caitlyn Ewers, a senior double-majoring in Art History and Latin and minoring in Classical and Near Eastern Civilizations, is the recipient of a highly competitive 2015 Phi Beta Kappa Writing Internship. The internship period begins in August and continues through December 2015.
Caitlyn is an Honors student, the president of Creighton’s chapter of the classics honor fraternity Eta Sigma Phi and an undergraduate research assistant at the Center for Henry James Studies, where she transcribes, annotates and publishes the extant letters of the Victorian author. After graduation, Caitlyn hopes to pursue a graduate degree in conservation.
Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest academic honor society in the United States. Their writing internships are usually for juniors and seniors majoring in the liberal arts or sciences who attend institutions where chapters are located. Interns must make a five-month commitment to the program and prepare a minimum of six publishable articles for the Society’s publication for news and alumni relations, The Key Reporter. The program has two deadlines annually, for internships in the fall and spring of each academic year. Fifteen students are selected from a national pool in each round. Congratulations, Caitlyn!
