Alumni Board of Advisors
Members of the Alumni Board leverage their personal experience as past fellows to guide, support, and encourage current fellows. Throughout the year, the Alumni Board hosts events such as panel discussions and networking opportunities. Alumni are encouraged to both attend and help plan events.
The Alumni Board oversees a Peer Mentorship program that aims to cultivate a sense of community among cohorts and support current fellows as they seek and prepare for their internships. Mentors and fellows are matched based on academic majors, career interests, and past internship sites.
The fellowship holds Alumni Board elections every Spring, where elected members volunteer to serve on the S Jay Levy Fellowship Alumni Board of Advisors for a 12-month term.
