The 2019 Program Fellows

Each year, a number of Residents apply for a limited number of Fellowship opportunities to take on critical roles that make International House special for all. As Fellows with the Office of Programs and Resident Life, they are charged with responsibilities related to specific aspects of the I-House Experience, from helping to organize the year’s array of cultural programs and events or otherwise engaging the Residents to give back to the surrounding community and make the most of their time here.
