The first recipients of the new International Development Fellowship established by the the University of Notre Dame’s Kellogg Institute for International Studies will be graduating seniors Maria Krug, Patrick Salemme and Olivia Schneider, Kellogg Institute Director Paolo Carozza announced in April.
The competitive one-year awards place the recipients in field partnerships with three international development organizations, said Assistant Director Holly Rivers, who directs the institute’s undergraduate programs and was instrumental in setting up the new fellowship.
“The International Development Fellowships will allow these new graduates to work in a field that is difficult to enter directly out of college but that is tremendously important,” said Carozza. “We are excited about the real-world experience they will gain and the contributions we expect them to make to human flourishing in communities around the world.
