The Charles W. Puttkammer ’58 Prisoner Reentry Fellowship program is open to Princeton seniors and places a 2013 graduate in a two-year, paid position as the Correctional Education and Reform fellow with the Vera Institute of Justice in New York City. The focus of the Puttkammer Prisoner Reentry fellowship program is to raise the profile of prisoner reentry issues for state decision-makers and local communities, and to support communities impacted by ex-offender reentry. The main goal of the 2013- 2015 fellowship at Vera is to assist in creating a model of effective volunteer-based correctional educational programming for inmate-students, with the primary objectives of: 1) early intervention to enhance and expand the education achievement of the inmate population and improve their chances for success upon reentry; and 2) replication of a volunteer-based correctional education model across facilities, agencies, and like institutions.
