On June 1, we hosted our first Esteemed Fellows Dinner of the summer in San Francisco for current fellows and fellowship alumni. The dinner brought together a cross-disciplinary group of leaders in their fields. Over a family style Italian dinner at the old school Capp’s Corner in North Beach, fellows discussed their latest projects and issues, including social entrepreneurship, women and gender issues, economic pressures on the arts community in San Francisco, and fellowship experiences in Indonesia. Business cards were exchanged, stories and experiences were shared, and fellows left the event with ideas and new contacts.
The Esteemed Fellows Dinners are organized by our International Fellows Network, which is a rapidly growing professional networking organization of more than 800 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 you can connect with other fellows for advice and information on fellowships, jobs, events, graduate programs and international competitions. If you are a current or former fellow and would like to get involved, please sign up for our fellowships database, and we’ll be in touch by email!
