On Thursday, July 25, the Council of American Ambassadors celebrated our Class of 2019 International Affairs Fellows at a graduation luncheon held at DACOR Bacon House. Students completed their Summer Fellowships by taking academic courses in foreign policy and economics at George Mason University; serving as interns at the State Department in various bureaus including Conflict and Stabilization Operations, Near Eastern Affairs, and Democracy, Human Rights and Labor; and receiving mentoring from Council Members and Alumni Fellows. We would like to thank co-chairs Ambassador Julia Chang Bloch and Ambassador Abelardo Valdez as well as Ambassadors Dwight Bush, Mark Brzezinski, Timothy Chorba, Laurie Fulton, G. Philip Hughes, John Maisto and Thomas Siebert for devoting time this Summer to mentoring our 2019 Fellows.
