The U.S. Department of State has chosen The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars as its operating partner for the 2016 Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship. The Pickering Fellowship is one of the State Department’s premier recruitment programs aimed at increasing diversity among U.S. Foreign Service officers. “We’re honored to work with the State Department on this initiative,” said Michael B. Smith, president of The Washington Center. “The goals of the Pickering Fellowship dovetail with The Washington Center’s mission to prepare young adults to lead and succeed as professionals and global citizens in the 21st century.” The Washington Center will assume administrative and programmatic functions for the Pickering Fellowship, which is available to 10 undergraduate and 20 graduate students who are, or will be attending, U.S. colleges and universities each year, beginning with the 2016 cohort.
