Morgan Knight ’22, has been awarded the 2021 Ruderman Scholarship.
Morgan is a third-year student majoring in Political Science and minoring in Jewish Studies, Law & Public Policy, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. After using a Jewish or civil rights lens in many of her courses and co-ops, including serving as a TA for Political Science Professor Candice Delmas, and a co-op at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, Morgan realized that minoring in Jewish Studies would allow her to synthesize many of her interests and coursework. Her major goal within Jewish Studies is to work towards a nation-wide mandate for Holocaust Education in high schools, and to investigate the intersections of Jewish thought, feminism, and social justice.
Involved in Hillel and the Jewish Student Union, in the fall of 2021 Morgan will be a full-time intern with the Anti-Defamation League of New England. Morgan plans to pursue a legal career focused on civil rights and combatting anti-semitism.
