Thanks to a gift from Eric ’66 and Mimi ’66 Carlson P’97, Carleton College has announced the establishment of the Robert E. Will ’50 Endowed Internship Fund in Social Entrepreneurship. Administered by Carleton’s career center, the fund supports 8-10 domestic or international internships per year at up to $5,000 each for students pursuing social entrepreneurship. The fund honors Bob Will, the Raymond Plank Professor of Incentive Economics, Emeritus. A 1950 Carleton graduate, Will earned his PhD at Yale University and taught at Carleton from 1957-93. He championed the importance of a liberal arts education, and each year the Robert E. Will Economics Prize is awarded to the senior economics major or majors who demonstrate excellent academic achievement and breadth of intellectual interests in the best tradition of a liberal arts education. Professor Will remains a resident of Northfield and is very involved in community activities.
