MPP Wang selected for Rosenthal Fellowship, interning for Newseum

Congratulations to Humphrey MPP candidate Wenchen Wang, who has been awarded a Harold W. Rosenthal Fellowship in International Relations and will intern with the First Amendment Center at the Newseum Institute in Washington D.C. The Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center serves as a forum for the study and exploration of free-expression issues through education, information and entertainment. Wenchen will help the director of the Center to build an association of international organizations this summer to promote free speech.

The Harold W. Rosenthal Fellowship offers qualified students pursuing a career in international relations the opportunity to spend a summer in professional fellowship positions with a Member of Congress or in the State Department. In the past several years, between 9 and 23 fellows have been selected.

The Fellowship is in honor of Harold Rosenthal, a Senate staff member who, in 1976, while engaged in a successful career in foreign relations, was a victim of international terrorism and killed at the age of 29. As a tribute to his memory, service and commitment to the profession of international affairs, each year a number of outstanding scholars are chosen from the leading international affairs educational institutions to become Rosenthal Fellows.

Fellows are selected based on their commitment to public service, their education and interest in international relations as well as their experience and dedication to those values and professional standards set by Mr. Rosenthal and the outstanding legacy of Rosenthal Fellowship alumni.

The Fellowship positions are carefully chosen to ensure that each fellow has an opportunity to perform substantive work in international relations and security policy. At least one Fellow a year also participates in the European Union’s Visitors Program.
