Rocky Student Soham Basu '20 Wins Prestigious Pickering Fellowship

Soham Basu '20 was recently awarded a Pickering Fellowship from the U.S. Department of State. Soham got his start at The Rockefeller Center engaging in the Rockefeller Global Leadership Program (RGLP) and from there went on to participate in many of the classes and programs Rocky has to offer. We, at the Rockefeller Center, congratulate Soham and look forward to seeing where he goes next!

 

Soham recently sat down to reflect on his Dartmouth experience at the Rockefeller Center.

Can you talk about the Pickering Fellowship? What is it and why are you excited for your fellowship?

The Pickering Fellowship is administered by the Department of State and provides entry into the Foreign Service. Fellows attend an MA program of their choice and are expected to serve (at minimum) 5 years with the Department. The Fellowship provides financial support for graduate school as well as mentoring and guidance in the early years of entering the service.
