Farewell to Inaugural SSN Postdoctoral Fellows

The Scholars Strategy Network congratulates the inaugural cohort of SSN Postdoctoral Fellows on the completion of their fellowship. SSN, the chapters that hosted them, and the communities that they joined benefitted greatly from the research they conducted and policy connections they made throughout their two year fellowship. SSN wishes them the best in their next endeavors, and we look forward to working with them as SSN members in the future.

Please join us in wishing the 2017-2019 SSN Postdoctoral Fellows a bittersweet farewell and congratulating them on their next steps.
