Program Overview (from the program website):

The Charles W. Puttkammer ’58 Prisoner Reentry Fellowship program is open to Princeton seniors and places a new graduate in a two-year, paid position with the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice (NJISJ) located in Newark, NJ. The focus of the Puttkammer Prisoner Reentry Fellowship is to raise the profile of prisoner reentry issues for state decision-makers and local communities, and to help protect communities from the negative impacts of reentry. The specific fellowship position and work is revisited annually. Through their work at NJISJ, the Princeton graduate builds on the knowledge and skills they developed at Princeton, gains valuable professional experience while exploring a career in the public interest, prisoner reentry and criminal justice, and makes a genuine contribution toward advancing the goals and mission of NJISJ and the Puttkammer program. Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Charles W. Puttkammer ’58, the selected fellow is paid an annual competitive stipend, with all basic health care benefits covered and paid by this funding. There are currently two Princeton graduates in Puttkammer fellowship positions.
