IRD Thanks Its Peace Corps Fellows
IRD hosted a reception and luncheon in honor of our IRD-Peace Corps fellows May 8. Carrie Hessler-Radelet, deputy director of the Peace Corps, and Stacy Rhodes, Peace Corps chief of staff, joined the celebration of this unique partnership, which invites third-year volunteers to work at our headquarters for three months conducting research and business development while learning from our staff of international development practitioners. Applications for the next round of IRD-Peace Corps fellows will begin in early fall 2012. For more information about the fellowships, please see our press release.
From l to r: IRD President Dr. Arthur B. Keys, Peace Corps Deputy Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet, IRD Board Member Roland Johnson, IRD-Peace Corps Fellows Mica Jenkins and Mark Strohbehn, and Peace Corps Chief of Staff Stacy Rhodes.
