International Fellows Network Dinner in NYC, May 2016

May 26, 2016

International Fellows Network New York City

On Monday, the International Fellows Network held a dinner at Lantern Thai Kitchen in New York City for current and former fellows. Co-hosted by former Fulbright fellows Ayushi Gummadi and Yaron Schwartz, the dinner brought together a cross-disciplinary group of leaders in their fields. Fellows discussed their interests and experiences, including the process for becoming a Foreign Service Officer, summer travel plans, other networking groups in NYC and graduate school experiences. Melis Tusiray also shared her experience launching her company, Hey Ladies, which provides mentorship services to professional women.

The International Fellows Network is a professional networking organization of more than 1,000 current and former fellows from all over the world. We have also held events in Washington, DC, New York City and Berlin, Germany. Through the IFN, current and former fellows can connect for advice and information on fellowships, jobs, events, graduate programs and collaborative opportunities. If you are a current or former fellow and would like to join, please sign up for our fellowships database, and we’ll be in touch by email!
