Rosenthal Fellowship Announces 2019 Fellows


The Harold W. Rosenthal Fellowship in International Relations today announced the selection of 25 fellows for summer 2019. The Fellowship provides graduate students in international relations the opportunity to spend a summer working on current foreign policy issues in the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. Government.


This year’s fellows represent 17 schools from across the United States. They will spend their summers in personal and committee offices on Capitol Hill as well as at the Government Accountability Office; the Departments of State, Defense, Treasury, and Labor; the United States Agency for International Development; the Office of the United States Trade Representative; and the Peace Corps.


Established in 1977 in memory of Harold W. Rosenthal, a congressional staffer killed in an overseas terrorist attack, over the last 42 years the Rosenthal Fellowship has placed more than 300 graduate students in summer positions across the federal government. Many Rosenthal Fellows have also participated in the European Union Visitors Program (EVP) and the Department of State’s Virtual Student Foreign Service program.


Rick Gilmore, Chairman Emeritus of the Rosenthal Fellowship, said, “We are incredibly proud of this year’s diverse and outstanding group of fellows. The Fellowship’s continuing success over more than four decades rests on the outstanding caliber of our fellows, the extraordinary support we receive from participating graduate schools and host offices, and the generous support of our Board, donors, and longstanding friends of the program. The Rosenthal Fellowship is living proof that terrorism cannot overwhelm the human spirit, and that commitment to public service remains alive and well.”


For the first time, the Rosenthal Fellowship is administered by the Partnership for Public Service, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to making the federal government more effective for the American people. “The Partnership for Public Service is pleased to administer the prestigious Rosenthal Fellowship. With only six percent of federal employees under age 30, we need to increase awareness and interest in government service among talented young professionals,” said Meroe Park, executive vice president of the Partnership for Public Service. “This fellowship is a unique opportunity for some of the best and brightest international relations students to gain exposure to the critical work of our government. After a meaningful summer experience, we hope these students will consider pursuing a career with the federal government.”


In addition to spending their summers working in host offices, Rosenthal Fellows will participate in a series of roundtable discussions with leading experts in international relations, in career planning sessions, and in congressional briefings. A number of Rosenthal Fellows are also Robertson Fellows. The Rosenthal Fellowship receives funding from the Robertson Foundation for Government, a sustaining supporter of the fellowship. The Fellowship has also received support from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Former Senator and Vice President Walter Mondale serves as honorary chairman of the Fellowship.
