Ruth Pulda and Merilee Milstein Memorial Internships 


One June 9, 2008, Connecticut's women and labor movements lost two of their strongest advocates: Ruth Pulda and Merrilee Milstein. These women embodied what it means to be a feminist and activist, and fought tirelessly to advance social justice issues. In memory of these courageous and inspirng leaders, CWEALF offers the Ruth Pulda and Merilee Milstein paid internships to graduate and undergraduate students who support specific program staff, and / or who would otherwise be unable to participate in our internship program because of their financial need.  

Congratulations to our Fall 2014 scholarship awardees!
