TFAS Welcomes a New Class of Leadership Fellows

TFAS is fortunate to have an outstanding group of over 10,000 alumni all over the world, and four years ago we launched a program to foster involvement for our DC-based alumni. The TFAS Leadership Fellows has grown tremendously in the past few years, with increasing numbers of applications and an impressive pool to choose from.

Through this year-long fellowship, a group of young professionals have the opportunity to attend policy discussions, multiple retreats and professional and personal development sessions. The main goal of this program is to allow these participants to:

  • Develop strong connections to other alumni working in public policy
  • Network with key public policy leaders
  • Participate in academic discussion sessions led by TFAS Faculty
  • Enhance their professional development through skill-based sessions 

This past Wednesday, January 27 we were pleased to welcome an outstanding group of 19 professionals to our 2010 Leadership Fellows class. They have a diverse background and work in public policy organizations such as think tanks, congressional offices, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, public affairs or lobbying groups, publications covering public policy or politics, academia and/or international affairs.

The Fellows program recruits every fall, around October and November, so if you are interested in participating, please feel free to contact Patricia Nichols at for more information, and look for our recruitment announcements in the fall.
