THE WILLIAM CALHOUN BOINEST STUDENT RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP IN ECONOMICS was established in 1993 through the generosity of the Officers and Staff of Craigie, Incorporated, of Richmond, in recognition of Mr. Boinest's thirty-fifth anniversary with the company. The Research Assistant, selected from outstanding economics majors, conducts economics-related research during the summer before his senior year and for the two semesters of his final year.
THE ROY B. SEARS ENDOWMENT FOR STUDENT INTERNSHIPS was established in 2000 by Burn Sears and R. Buford Sears in memory of their father, Roy B. Sears, class of 1942. The Internships are administered by the Office of Career Development. Recipients are provided with the opportunity to explore career options and to develop skills that can be used in the workplace upon graduation.
THE CHARLES WILDER WATTS, JR. '31 CHI PHI INTERNSHIP ENDOWMENT was established in 2008 by a generous gift from Mr. Watts' estate. The endowment provides funding for internships for members of the Chi Phi Fraternity. If in any year no Chi Phi internships are awarded, then the funds may become available to members of other fraternities who are juniors at the College and are deemed by the Office of Career Development to be the most deserving. If none are selected, the earnings are to be reinvested in the corpus of the endowment.
