Master's alumna to host Presidential Management Fellowship info session Sept. 1
On Thursday, Sept. 1, graduate students and faculty are invited to connect with Kristen Sikorsky, K-State 2020 master's graduate in horticulture and natural resources and 2021 Presidential Management Fellowship finalist. Sikorsky will present "Pathway to the Presidential Management Fellowship" from 2-3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, via Zoom.
Sikorsky will share a brief overview of the program and the benefits the fellowship provides, how to apply and what happens if you are selected as a finalist. Sikorsky will also reflect on her own fellowship experience thus far.
Administered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the Presidential Management Fellowship Program is a flagship leadership development program for advanced degree candidates. Finalists are matched with the federal agency of their choice for two-year fellowships and possible appointment to that agency once their fellowship has been served.
Sikorsky learned about the fellowship from a federal employee at a professional conference. She was K-State's first finalist, and she hopes to bridge a gap and inspire a new generation who aspire to be public servants to apply for the fellowship.
