Aaron Zeiler

Congratulations to Aaron Zeiler, 4PR, who has been named as one of seven students nationwide to participate in the 2015 Frank Karel Fellowship in Public Interest Communications. Aaron will spend this summer working for the Washington, D.C.-based Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, a leading force in the fight to reduce tobacco use and its deadly toll in the United States and around the world. He’ll join our own Mina Radman, JOU 2014 who serves as Communications Associate for the organization.

The Karel Fellowship program honors and advances the legacy of Frank Karel, who established, led and nurtured the field of strategic communications in philanthropy during his 30 years as chief communications officer for the Robert Wood Johnson and Rockefeller Foundations. Our Public Interest Communication program, under the watchful eye of Public Relations Professor Ann Christiano, has consistently placed students in the summer fellowship program.

The Karel Fellowship in Public Interest Communications is a unique, hands-on, experiential summer program that inspires undergraduate students by exposing them to professional experiences as social change communicators. This Fellowship is especially focused on translating personal passion for a more just world into communication skills that elicit social change. Fellows—either first-generation or minority college students—gain hands-on experience through working on social justice issues, under the guidance of a communications mentor at leading local, national and global nonprofits in the Greater Washington, DC area.

The Frank Karel Fellowship in Public Interest Communications is made possible by support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Spitfire Strategies, Burness, Brodeur Partners, the Viola Fund, and Betsy Karel. Now in its fourth year, the Karel Fellowship is administered out of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers, a network of funders dedicated to promoting increased, effective, and responsible philanthropy in the Greater Washington region.
