Recent Berry College graduate Amanda Sophia Ashley was selected as one of 19 Pickering Fellows, a prestigious program funded by the U.S. Department of State that prepares graduate students for careers with the State Department Foreign Service.
The fellowship is
administered through the Washington Center for Internships and Academic
Seminars and participants are selected through a national competition.
“I am thankful for the
opportunities I have had and grateful to everyone at Berry and elsewhere that
has helped shape me into the determined person that I am,” Ashley said. “I see
this fellowship and career with the Department of State as a way for me to make
a meaningful difference in the world through foreign policy.”
Ashley will complete two
summer internships while earning her graduate degree in global studies at the
University of North Carolina. She will gain practical
experience both at a State Department bureau in Washington, D.C. and at an embassy
abroad, and when she graduates she will put that experience to work as a
commissioned Foreign Service Officer working at embassies around the world.
