Founded as the Ethics Center Student Fellowship Program and renamed in 2009 to honor the work of former JFK speechwriter Theodore "Ted" Sorensen, the Sorenson Fellowship Program provided funding for more than 120 Brandeis sophomores and juniors to participate in summerlong, internationally focused internships with individuals and organizations on six different continents on a wide variety of issues, laying the groundwork for careers and lives that are attentive to social justice and foster richer, more ethical public life. Many alumni of the program remain a part of the Sorensen community, eagerly sharing their experiences and successes with their former colleagues and mentors.
