2016 CWI Summer Conference

CWI Launches Paul Reber Fellowship

Paul Reber

The Civil War Institute has launched a new student fellowship in memory of Gettysburg College alumnus and friend Paul C. Reber ‘82, a leading member of the public history community. The fellowship establishes an annual summer internship for a Gettysburg College student at Stratford Hall: Home of the Lees. Before his passing last summer, Reber served as the executive director of Stratford Hall for nearly ten years and is largely credited with many of the restorative efforts that have increased the site’s annual visitation numbers and national visibility. The inaugural recipient of the Reber Fellowship is Caitlin Connelly '17, a history major from Howell, New Jersey. Read more here.

2016 HS Student Simulation

Most students hope for an internship where they can learn about an industry they are interested in, develop a few key skills for that industry, and make valuable connections that could help them enhance their professional network. Jake Farias ’16 was able to do this and so much more as last summer’s recipient of CWI’s Robert Sibley Cooper Fellowship. Not only was he able to work alongside some of the leading experts in the field of history, but he was also charged with creating an original educational workshop on the New York City draft riots of 1863 for high school students attending the nationally-renowned CWI conference. However, a fellowship working with the CWI’s annual conference was not an opportunity Farias had originally anticipated.
