Two Ford School students selected for 2009 Harold W. Rosenthal Fellowship

July 14, 2009
Matt Johnson (MPP ’10) and Gary Vanderwill (MPP ’10) were among eleven students awarded a 2009 Harold W. Rosenthal Fellowship in International Relations. The Fellowship, begun in 1977, offers exceptional students the opportunity to spend a summer in a professional fellowship position with either a member of Congress or the U.S. State Department.

Jonhson, also named the program’s first Rosenthal Rotary International Fellow, will complete his fellowship with the House Committee on Homeland Security. Vanderwill, a former intelligence specialist, will spend his fellowship in the Special Operations/Low-Intensity Conflict office in the U.S. Department of Defense.

The Rosenthal Fellowship was created in honor of Harold Rosenthal, a U.S. Senate staff member who was a victim of international terrorism and killed in 1976 at the age of 29. The Fellowship is run in partnership with the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA).
