Lindstroms illuminate the path for Brandl scholars

600-LindstromThe Lindstroms are no strangers to illuminating a path to lifelong learning. While their current pledge is to annual scholarships and the Washington, D.C. program, they have also given to the Jackson Fellows program, the Escher endowment, the Susan Imdieke Lindstrom memorial scholarship, and they were Red Mass sponsors.

The Washington, D.C. program provides Brandl scholars $5,000 to support their summer internships in our nation’s capital. The Lindstroms previously pledged $5,000/year. By increasing their pledge to $10,000/year, they’re enabling two students each summer to realize their internship dreams. In 2018, CSB saw the largest cohort (28) in the program’s history, thanks, in part, to scholarship support.

Some of the 2018 Brandl recipients included:

  • Mackenzie Kuhl ’19, who interned with the NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, a global movement for justice and peace
  • Lucy Dornbach ’19, who worked with Minnesota’s U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar
  • Samantha Givens ’20, who learned about the Advocacy Project, a non-profit assisting marginalized communities
  • Sameera Sheikh ’19 and Danica Simonet ’19, who worked with the Jubilee USA Network, an organization focused on debt relief for developing countries
