ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A New Jersey student has been selected to participate in a summer internship program with the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), one of largest women's political organizations in the nation.
Jenna Schweyher, a native of Middlesex, N.J., has been awarded the Dorothy Andrews Kabis Memorial Internship, which gives young women the opportunity to spend part of the summer at NFRW headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
Schweyher graduated from Rutgers University last December with degrees in political science and history. She has been active in College Republicans, Middlesex County Republican Women and other Republican organizations, and served as an intern for Congressman Tom MacArthur. In addition to volunteering on campaigns, working the local polls and organizing community events, Schweyher is passionate about political activism. She recently presented a speech to the New Jersey Senate Health Committee on the Aid in Dying Act.
“As an intern for NFRW, I am excited to be a part of such a wonderful institution surrounded by strong motivated women who have made such a difference in the political arena,” Schweyher says. “I look forward to learning the ins and outs of supporting and campaigning for Republican women throughout the country and hope to continue working towards a better America.”
Awarded annually, the Kabis internship is named for the former president of the NFRW who was later appointed U.S. treasurer by President Richard Nixon. Read more about this internship.
