Yahoo! Gift Expands ISD-MSFS Collaboration
On April 12, Yahoo! Inc. presented a $1 million gift to Georgetown University to establish the Yahoo! International Values, Communications, Technology, and Global Internet Fellowship Fund. Starting in fall 2007, the eight-year program will support one annual Yahoo! Fellow at the SFS Institute for the Study of Diplomacy (ISD) and two Junior Yahoo! Fellows chosen from the Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) program.
The Yahoo! Fellow, who will be chosen from the emerging market economies of China, India, Russia and Brazil, will contribute to MSFS lectures, potentially mentor MSFS students, and research topics in international communication.
