Headed for the Foreign Service

Megan Tetrick ’03, one of our former opinion editors, has been awarded a prestigious Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship to pursue her graduate education at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. She is studying for a master's degree in international affairs.
The fellowship, which is funded by the State Department, attracts and prepares recipients for the U.S. foreign service.
After graduation from IC, Megan spent nearly three years in the Peace Corps teaching English in the Ukraine. While there she learned Ukrainian and Russian.
After she completes her degree at Columbia, she will intern at an embassy abroad as part of the fellowship; she will then train at the Foreign Service Institute in Washington, D.C., and receive an assignment as a foreign service officer.
