Walter H. Judd Fellowships

2018 Judd Fellows Expo

The annual Judd Fellows Expo was held on Oct. 9, 2018, at the McNamara Alumni Center. A record number of enthusiastic supporters attended the Expo to hear the 2018 Judd Fellows talk about their experiences abroad.

In addition, Judd alumna Genya Dana shared the story of her journey from a Judd Fellow in Geneva to negotiating on healthcare policy at the World Economic Forum’s famous conference in Davos.

She told the crowd, "Thank you to the donors and the network that gave me the support I needed to start my career. That’s really what the Judd Fellowship was about for me. The Judd gave me the seed funding to get to Geneva, my very first trip overseas."
