The Dell Thurmond Woodard Fellowship

The Dell Thurmond Woodard Fellowship, which includes one $5,000 grant for one student each year, is part of the Tisdale Fellowship program, a summer internship available to undergraduate and graduate students. Any student, undergraduate or graduate, who is interested in diversity and ethics issues, and in learning about high-tech public policy issues, can apply for this Fellowship.

The Dell Thurmond Woodard Fellowship was created in memory of the late Thurmond Woodard, Dell's former Vice President of Global Diversity and Chief Ethics, Privacy and Compliance Officer. Those interested should use the Eben Tisdale Fellowship Application, found at www.tisdalefellowship.org, and follow the instructions for submitting an additional essay on ethics and diversity. The Dell Thurmond Woodard Fellowship grant recipient will participate in the same program as those in the Tisdale

The Fellowship has two main elements:

1) Internship: Fellows participate an eight-week internship in the government relations office of a leading high technology company or association. In the recent past, fellows have interned at such companies as Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Philips Electronics and Monster Worldwide, as well as associations such as the Business Software Alliance or TechAmerica.

2) Issues Seminar: The issues seminar is a weekly lunch hosted by the different sponsoring companies and associations. Expert speakers lead discussions of current public policy issues in Washington, and the methods the high technology industry uses for effective advocacy.

The Summer 2010 Fellowship runs from June 14th - August 6th, 2010. The goal of the Fellowship is to create a supportive and collegial environment in which a new class of public policy professionals will be mentored to help ensure that the high-tech industry continues to have highly capable and well-trained individuals in both policy advocacy and senior management positions. The Final deadline for all applications is February 15, 2010.
