The Roanoke College Economics Program is excited to announce that junior economics major Jared Mercadante has been accepted into the Koch Fellow Program (KFP) for the summer of 2017.
Per the webpage:
ABOUT THE KOCH FELLOW PROGRAM (KFP): POLICY
The Charles Koch Institute’s semester-long fellow program gives students the opportunity to gain hands-on paid policy experience while participating in focused professional education. In addition to hearing from leading policy experts each Tuesday, fellows come together in DC at the beginning and end of the program for professional development workshops and networking opportunities.
Through the program, fellows will find a full- or part-time internship with one of our partner organizations throughout the country. Roles are specifically geared toward a future career in policy and research analysis; however, we encourage applicants from all academic disciplines, as well as those with advanced degrees.
We are extremely proud and excited for Jared. If you see him on campus, tell him congrats.
