Two graduate students have been selected as finalists for the 2007 Presidential Management Fellowship by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. The fellowship is designed to attract exceptional graduate students from a variety of academic disciplines to leadership and management positions in the areas of U.S. public policies and programs. This year, 3,725 applicants were nominated to the program and only 792 graduate students nationwide made it the final round. UGA’s contenders are Brandon Hollingshead from the School of Law and Jason Nedlo from the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources.
The nomination process for 2008 will open later this fall. Faculty interested in nominating graduate students for the program can visit www.pmf.opm.gov.
