Washington, DC – PAAIA is pleased to announce the launch of the Ansari Fellowship Program, an initiative seeking to encourage and empower young Iranian-Americans to pursue careers in public service.
Iranian Americans are some of the most successful entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, engineers and scientists in the United States. Yet, for various reasons, many are still not involved in politics or public service more broadly. We are aiming to change that by providing funding for unpaid Summer internships, as well as access to a network of public policy experts and mentorship opportunities.
Our mission is to help give rise to an unprecedented generation of Iranian American leaders in the field. Applications for the Ansari Fellowship Program will be open in January 2017. Click here to learn more about this exciting opportunity.
