“My experience during the Alfa Fellowship Program was instrumental in leading me to my current position as a political risk consultant for the Eurasia region. There is no substitute for living in a place if you want to understand it, and the ability to do so in a highly professional capacity makes the Alfa Fellowship a rare and valuable opportunity.”
Zachary Witlin, Alfa Fellow (2013-2014)
