The Class of 2024 Robertson Fellows have finished their first year of graduate school and are embarking upon their summer internships, focused on furthering their careers in public service. This year, Fellows are interning at agencies as diverse as the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service, U.S. State Department, and the U.S. Treasury Department. Two RFG Fellows, Olivia Parker (UMD, 2024) and Jackson Rice (UCSD, 2024) are interning in Hawaii with the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, while RFG Fellow, Melissa Alvisi (Maxwell, 2024) is spending the summer in Singapore, interning for the Commercial Service.
In addition to their internship experiences, these Fellows will have the opportunity to attend a series of professional development events hosted by the Partnership for Public Service’s Call to Serve Network. These events are designed to strengthen their skills and broaden their professional networks in the Federal Government. As part of these events, RFG Fellows will network with members of the Partnership for Public Service’s Rosenthal Fellowship and Future Leaders in Public Service program. Along with these professional development opportunities, the RFG Fellows interning in Washington, DC this summer will have the chance to network with RFG Alumni and members of the U.S. Foreign Service community through RFG-hosted, in-person events at the DACOR Bacon House.
RFG looks forward to sharing more about their summer experiences and highlighting their stories this Fall.
