Gettysburg College's Eisenhower Institute (EI) has selected six students to participate in its Undergraduate Fellows program.
The students will "study, learn, travel, and experience mentoring opportunities," EI Director Jeffrey Blavatt said. In January, five of the six fellows - Gwen Brown '11, Sara Cawley '11, David Curtis '12, Anskar Fosse '11 and Chido Munangagwa '11 - will travel to the On Sustainability Conference in Hamilton, New Zealand to present their papers on economic, social, and political implications of environmental issues written by the current fellows.
Fellows serve on the EI's College Advisory Council, act as liaisons for assigned Institute events at both locations, and serve as hosts for campus visitors. Students engage fully in the planning and promotion of specific programs and projects. They are responsible for selecting, developing, and promoting a public policy theme with programming in both Washington and in Gettysburg.
Meet the fellows below.
