FAIT Fellowship

In October 2020, The Washington Center gave a presentation to LUC students on the Foreign Affairs Information Technology Fellowship, or FAIT.  Sophomores and seniors can apply for the FAIT, which funds either the junior and senior years of college; or a two-years Master's degree in IT or a related field.  In exchange, the Fellow then works for the U.S. Foreign Service as an IT professional.

The presernation inlcudes Ramla Osman from The Washington Center (which administers the program); Ron Packowitz, the Midwest Diplmat in Residence and Foreign Service Officer; and Makenna Walsh, an LUC student who won an FAIT in 2019 as a sophomore.
