The Washington Fellowship is a fantastic program. The past four months have provided me with the opportunity to grow professionally as well as spiritually. - Kenlyn

I am so happy that Liberty offers this opportunity, and I am thrilled that I took part in it. - Mike

I ended up getting a job as a program analyst at the Office of Investigations at USAID's OIG where I had interned last semester. I never would have gotten the job if it weren't for the Washington Fellowship and I'm very thankful for the opportunity we all had to complete the program. - Carly
