I don’t quite understand what’s going on, but it sounds cool.
Hiatt gets to be the only New England school to host 1 of 10 Presidential Management Fellows pilot sites, which, according to the press release, means this:
This rigorous leadership opportunity recruits top graduate students for a two-year developmental fellowship at various federal agencies. Fellows receive two-year paid fellowships, competitive pay and benefits, 80 hours of training each year, and accelerated promotion potential within the federal government. Last year, two graduates of The Heller School for Policy and Management were selected for this prestigious award, and 16 Heller students have been nominated for the program this year.
Good? I don’t see how this changes my life in one way or another.
