Wilson College Students: PLEN will also offer two scholarships for currently enrolled/recently graduated Wilson College students. Please visit this page for more information.
“PLEN has been the single most helpful and inspiring seminar of my college career. During the five-day seminar in Washington, D.C., me and 40 of my peers received valuable career advice from professionals involved with institutions such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Foreign Service, the Peace Corps, and the UN World Food Programme. Speaking with accomplished women about their personal career paths and experiences has broadened my perspective of the public sector and helped me better define my personal career goals in public diplomacy. The dozens of relationships I formed with my peers and professionals in Washington will prove to be invaluable as I advance in my career. I recommend this seminar for all undergraduate women who are interested in learning more about international public policy.”
