Four students from Johns Hopkins University Advanced Academic Programs and one student from Johns Hopkins Carey Business School were awarded fellowships this year by The Bryce Harlow Foundation.

The recipients include Emily Rossi, MA Candidate in Communication, two Government students, Adam Peshek and Caitlyn Gart, and one student in the dual degree MA Government/MBA Program, Elyssa Hesky. Luis Campillo is an MBA candidate at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.

According to the Bryce Harlow Foundation website, the fellowship was designed to award “exceptional graduate students with career goals in government relations and lobbying who demonstrate high academic achievement and leadership skills…[F]ellows attend graduate school part-time while working full-time in a variety of settings, including Capitol Hill, government agencies, lobbying firms and trade associations.”

Of the almost 70 applications submitted on-line this year, its committee selected 20 fellows.

In addition to the $8,000 award, Fellows participate in mentoring relationships with the Foundation’s board of governors.
