Professional Affiliations

Professional Affiliations are both a highlight and a requirement of the program. The Fellows must complete one six week professional affiliation (PA) with an organization suited to their professional skills and interests. They develop a professional affiliation program plan that outlines their goals and interests and what they would like to get out of their PA and then work with the directors and the identified organizations to arrange the final details. This year, PAs were completed in various fields including departments on campus, non-profit organizations, government offices, agricultural companies and many more. 

We are thankful for the support we have received from the PA host organizations, especially from the supervisors. Thank you for all of your time and effort you have put into working with the Fellows to foster their leadership skills and refine and further develop their technical skills.
