MORRISTOWN, N.J. — The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University and The Louis Berger Group have announced the selection of the third group of Louis Berger Graduate Fellows for the upcoming academic year. The 2012-2013 Fellows are David Koch (New Brunswick, N.J.), Matthew Kusy (New Brunswick, N.J.), Areej Sabzwari (Edison, N.J.) and Joshua Wilcox (Highland Park, N.J.).

Through the Berger Fellows program, created in 2009, Master of City and Regional Planning and/or Master of Public Policy students from the Bloustein School are considered for a comprehensive fellowship award and earn credit during a professional internship at one of the company’s international locations. The Bloustein School and LBG have a long-standing relationship; many of the school’s graduates are or have been senior managers with the firm, and the company has provided financial and other support to the Bloustein School for over 10 years - part of LBG's broad commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability.

At the conclusion of their first year of study each Fellow embarks upon a full-time summer internship as a member of one of LBG’s international project teams, which carry out planning and engineering projects from over 80 locations around the world.  Areej Sabzwari will be working this summer in Qatar, David Koch in Paris and Cameroon, Joshua Wilcox in Mozambique and Matthew Kusy in Kuwait.

Congratulations to this year's Berger Fellows!
