DARTMOUTH, MA. – The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth announced the selection of Ms. Evelize S. Andrade of New Bedford to receive the 2004 Dukakis Public Service Internship. Beginning on June 28, Ms. Andrade will work as a full-time intern for the Investigations Division at the Office of Attorney General Tom Reilly in Boston. 

“The pool of applicants this year was superb,” according to Professor William Hogan, Chairman of the economics department. “We would have been happy with any of the applicants. It was a difficult decision,” he added. 

The Michael S. Dukakis Internship for public service is awarded to support public service internships in the community for undergraduate or graduate students at the University. The former Governor created this internship program at UMass Dartmouth in the early 1990s. 

Ms. Andrade is a 21-year old junior, majoring in sociology and with a criminal justice minor. Her goal is to become an attorney, focusing on service for her Cape Verdean community. The energetic Evelize has been very active within her community, especially at New Bedford High School and UMass Dartmouth. 

She has worked as a peer leader for Impact, a local teenage pregnancy prevention group, which led to her selection for the Massachusetts Peer Institute. For the last nine years, Ms. Andrade has been in the Educational Talent Search program, a college preparatory program similar to Upward Bound. 

On the UMass Dartmouth campus, Evelize has been active in the Student Senate, the Cape Verdean Student Association, as well as the Frederick Douglass Unity House.
