…The Scoville Fellowship has had a tremendous impact on my life. It launched my career by bringing me to DC, giving me Washington experience in my field of dreams, and providing me with a support network of Scoville Board members and former fellows. I’ve always known that whatever I do for a living, I want to do something that will make the world a better place. The Scoville Fellowship has helped me to make this idealistic goal a reality.
