2 min read

A trustee of the University of Notre Dame, a former naval intelligence officer, and a former special assistant to the Iraqi Ministry of Health are among this year’s Zuckerman Fellows.

Established by a gift from Mortimer B. Zuckerman LL.M. ’62, the fellowship enables people with an interest in public service and professional training in medicine, law, or business to pursue master’s degrees at the Graduate School of Education, the School of Public Health, or the Kennedy School of Government (KSG). The fellows also participate in a co-curricular program designed by KSG’s Center for Public Leadership that includes leadership skill building, a guest speaker series, and a field trip.

This year’s 25 Zuckerman Fellows bring a wealth of experience in public service and leadership to the Harvard community, including work for organizations such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Center for American Progress, Teach for America, Americorps, the National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as government agencies and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

The 2007–08 fellows, grouped according to their School affiliation, are:

Graduate School of Education: Andrew Blanco, Katie Greenzang, Jennifer Kesselheim, Kelly Leventis, and Kate Richey

Harvard School of Public Health: Johnathan Bernard, Beverly Du, Rena Patel, Aaron Remenschneider, Rickquel Tripp, Emily Can Dyke, and Amit Vora

Kennedy School of Government: Tobias Berkman, Elana Berkowitz, Ethan Brackett, Stephen Chan, Elizabeth Côté, Brad Davis, Brian Elliot, Ingrid Ganske, Daniel Hsu, Moushumi Khan, Amy Lawrence, Keri Oxley, and Shireen Santosham
