“The Bryce Harlow Fellowship provides an unrivaled opportunity to learn about government relations from talented experts,” says Prieto. “Through the Foundation’s mentorship component, I will be able to enhance my career on Capitol Hill while gaining context for my studies at the McCourt School.”

The mission of the Bryce Harlow Foundation is focused on advancing the integrity of government advocacy and increasing understanding of its important role in the development of public policy. Fresconi, who has been awarded the fellowship for a second time, describes the fellowship as an “opportunity to demonstrate to others that government affairs can – and is – done with integrity.”

“The Foundation also provides a wonderful forum for networking where I can learn from leaders in the industry who I greatly admire,” Fresconi added.

The Bryce Harlow Fellowship is awarded to individuals who work full-time and undertake graduate-level studies on a part-time basis. The fellowship awards each fellow $8,000 to help defray the cost of tuition and offers mentorship opportunities with the Foundation’s board members.

“I’m honored to have been selected as a fellow with the Bryce Harlow Foundation,” said DeYoung. “I look forward to deepening my knowledge surrounding lobbying and policymaking while building on the value of integrity that both the Bryce Harlow Foundation and McCourt emphasize.”

Congratulations to all the Bryce Harlow Fellows for the 2020-21 academic year!
