From Tufts University: In 2016, the Bruce-Griffey Leadership and Diversity Internship Fund Committee established an internship fund in memory of two of our classmates, Lena Bruce and Anita Griffey, incredible people whose lives were both tragically cut short. The B/G Awardees pursued life changing summer internships that exemplified Lena and Anita's demonstrated commitment to leadership, social injustice, science, culture, community service and, simply, improving the life of Tufts' dynamic and diverse body of students, faculty and alumni.
