Introducing the Lundquist Fellows Class of 2015-16!
This month, we announced the Partnership’s highly anticipated Lundquist Fellows class of 2015-16! A total of 22 students from across the Partnership’s middle and high schools were selected after a competitive interview process.
The Richard and Melanie Lundquist Fellows Program launched in 2010 to identify and develop promising young leaders who have already demonstrated leadership, and commitment to their school, education and communities.
As a Lundquist Fellow, students receive several opportunities for professional growth. They are invited to join the Partnership’s Student Advisory Board where they get the chance to influence our work. They participate in career shadowing to gain real-world experience and engage in a mentoring program where they receive one-on-one college and career advice. Fellows also take part in various Partnership events, including a recognition ceremony at the end of the program. After successfully completing the program, our 22 Lundquist Fellows will receive a $500 scholarship to advance their educational aspirations. Congratulations to our students!
