Rosenthal Fellowship Announces 2018 Fellowship

Class

 

The Harold W. Rosenthal Fellowship in International Relations announced today the selection of twenty five fellows for summer 2018. The Fellowship provides graduate students from select graduate programs in international relations the opportunity to spend a summer working on international relations in the US Government Executive Branch or the US Congress.

This year’s Fellows represent 12 schools. They will intern at a variety of US agencies, including the Office of the United States Trade Representative; the Departments of Treasury, Defense, Labor, and State; US Embassies; and Congressional offices.

Established in 1977 in memory of Harold Rosenthal, a Congressional staffer and victim of international terrorism while on official duty, there have been over 300 Fellows to date. Since the inception of the Rosenthal Fellowship, many Rosenthal Fellows have also participated in The European Union Visitors Program (EVP). Fellows also have the opportunity to extend their summer internship project under a mentoring program—VSFS (Virtual Student Foreign Service) offered by the Department of State.

Rick Gilmore, Chairman of the Rosenthal Fellowship, said, “The program’s success depends first and foremost on the outstanding caliber of our fellows, the extraordinary support we receive from host offices in the Congress and Executive Branch and participating graduate schools, and the generous contributions and support of our Board, donor institutions, and longstanding friends of the program. The Fellowship is living proof that terrorism cannot overwhelm the human spirit. We’re a program whose purpose is to provide exceptional students with unique government experience. They are our future private and public sector leaders offering new economic, political, and defense strategies in international relations.”

The Rosenthal Fellowship includes a series of Roundtable discussions with experts from DC research organizations and universities, career planning sessions, and Congressional briefings. The Robertson Foundation for Government hosts a number of events for Rosenthal-Robertson and Rosenthal fellows throughout the year.

The Rosenthal Fellowship has received financial support from a number of individual donors, as well as the Robertson Foundation for Government, the Rotary Foundation and, previously, from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Former Senator and Vice President Fritz Mondale serves as honorary chairman of the Fellowship.
