The Stanford Cardinal Careers Fellowships offer graduating seniors a funded one-year, full-time experience with an organization doing work for the public good. The John Gardner Public Service Fellowship, Schneider Fellowship, and Tom Ford Fellowship in Philanthropy all recently announced the fellows for the 2022-23 academic year.

The John Gardner Public Service Fellowship gives students the opportunity to select a nonprofit or government organization of their choosing to work for. Famyrah Lafortune, ’22, is an international relations major focusing on social development and human well-being, along with international history and culture. Megha Parwani, ’22, is a philosophy and political science major who researches the best ways to advocate for deliberative democracy and reform institutions. Haleigh Quinn, ’22, studies public policy and seeks to understand how policies can affect equitable outcomes for low-income people of color.

The Schneider Fellows program places students in nongovernmental organizations in the sustainable energy field. Sylvie Ashford, BA ’21, MA ’22, and Claire Lang-Ree, '22, will be working at the Natural Resources Defense Council in San Francisco as Western Sustainable Energy and Climate Fellows. Ashford received her bachelor’s degree in international relations and is working on her master’s in international policy with a focus on energy, resources and the environment. Lang-Ree is simultaneously working on a bachelor’s and master’s degree in earth systems. Rachel Hu, ’22, is studying civil and environmental engineering and will be the Midwest Sustainable Energy and Climate Fellow at the National Resources Defense Council in Chicago. Yeh-Tang (Ricky) Huang, BA ’21, MA '22, will be the Eastern Sustainable Energy and Climate Fellow at the Natural Resources Defense Council in New York. Huang has a bachelor's degree in comparative literature and is currently working on a master's degree in sustainability science and practice.

The Tom Ford Fellowship in Philanthropy gives students the chance to work in a U.S.-based grantmaking foundation with the goal to learn more about how certain philanthropic issues are funded. This year’s cohort have all pursued a bachelor's degree in political science. Maggie Roache, ’22, focuses on international human rights issues, especially in situations of human rights violations. Zecheng Wang, ’22, is simultaneously pursuing a master’s degree in management science and engineering. His research focuses on understanding and responding to global underdevelopment through innovative solutions. Kayla Williams, ’22, develops models of resource redistribution that support individuals and families dealing with scarcity.
