Kokopeli is an Environmental Protection Specialist in the Clean Air Markets Division with the Environmental Protection Agency where he was formerly an Information Technology Specialist. From 1994-96, he served as the alumni Fellow on the Scoville Fellowship board.
…In my case the Fellowship served dual purposes: for myself, to try out a new and rather different career, and for my family, to try out a new (and very different) city. The venture was successful on both counts. We were going to come to DC in any case, but there is no question the Fellowship enhanced the experience. The support offered by the staff and board helped me settle in those first few weeks, and the stipend allowed us to double our stay. I found that simply being a Fellow carried a cachet. I have no doubt that it will make the difference in finding a job.
