Info Briefing on Foreign Service Officer Career and the Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship Prgms  (Special Events)

On the advice of the U.S. Department of State's Diplomat-in-Residence at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mr. James Ellickson-Brown, and MSU Senior Associate Provost Dr. June Pierce Youatt, Ambassador Gadsden is requesting your assistance in encouraging outstanding minority and financially disadvantaged juniors and seniors who are interested in foreign affairs to apply for the Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs or Graduate Foreign Affairs Fellowships leading to careers as U.S. Foreign Service Officers. A retired career Foreign Service Officer now with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, which administers the Pickering Fellowship programs, Ambassador Gadsden is tasked to seek applicants who are U.S. citizens; who have financial need; who are outstanding students representing the ethnic, social, and geographic diversity of our population; who have majors in international relations, economics, business, and political science; and who are interested in becoming career U.S. Foreign Service officers. The State Department is especially interested in students majoring in critical languages and area studies (Chinese; Arabic; Hindi-Urdu; East, North, South, and Southeast Asian Studies; and Middle East Studies) that mesh with the Department's current and anticipated skills needs.
