The A. Paul Knight program was established in memory of Paul Knight of the class of 1986 who was killed in Yellowstone Park in June 1985. Paul was the son of Albert F. Knight, a 1951 graduate of the Washington and Lee Law School. Paul was an anthropology major who had worked with Professor John McDaniel on several field projects in archaeology. The program is designed to fund projects that further the protection of the environment or provide ecologically sound outdoor recreational opportunities. Undergraduate students from any major and law students interested in the environment are eligible for the Knight Internship.
