Students who want to explore careers in the non-profit and government sectors have a great resource right here on campus: the Bucknell Public Interest Program (BPIP) and the BPIP Internship Fund.

Last night I attended the John Legend talk and performance and was blown away, much like the rest of the crowd (at least according to Twitter).  I don’t know if it’s just because I work at the CDC or not but I felt like his talk was very much about careers; not being afraid to take risks, following your passion, trying something new, failing and starting over. His talk had […]

PiAf Fellows work in service-oriented positions in many different fields, including humanitarian aid, public health, conservation, and education. The more I checked in to this fellowship to write about it the more I wanted to apply. I ran into this inspiring blog, Beyond the Gate, featuring first-person perspectives from recent alums […]
