View Transcript Slide 1 Hello everyone. My name is Jason Chan, the Fellowship and Career Advisor at CCPA. Welcome to the first part of Fellowships 101. In this first of three videos, we’ll be talking about what fellowships are and why you might want to consider one as part of your academic or career plans. Slide 2 Before we dive in, I want to share some of Haverford’s successes in the world of fellowships. First, Haverford was recently named a Fulbright Top Producing Institution for the 5th year in a row. In the last five years, since 2015, 24 Haverford students and alumni have received a Fulbright grant, this represents 30% of all Haverford students and alumni who applied.

Alumni Connections This Year (So Far): By the Numbers

Alumni Connections This Year (So Far): By the Numbers

Alumni Connections This Year (So Far): By the Numbers   Now more than ever, the CCPA relies on alumni volunteers to help current Haverford students explore different paths, prepare for professional roles, gain experience, and launch their careers. Here is how our alumni volunteers have helped to make a difference since the start of this year. — 286 Connections Were Made via Haverford Connect From a First-Year student, tentative Physics and Computer Science major: “I have been using Haverford Connect for a while and have found it amazing. Recently, I contacted an alum through Haverford Connect and had an hour-long conversation with him, as if we knew each other for years! Also, I just got matched with an alum working in a career I am interested in through the Extern Program (managed through Haverford Connect). I see Haverford Connect like a bridge connecting students and alumni together thereby enrichening the entire Haverford community.” Students- Log into Haverford Connect using your Haverford credentials and access our strong alumni network. Reach out to alumni about industry information, application help, and more. Alumni-Activate your account to connect with other alumni and allow students to reach out to you. Post in the “Hire a Ford” group to help connect Fords with open positions at your organization. Do you have a Haverford Connect story to share? Submit your story here. — 80+ Alumni Participated in Career Chats, Information Sessions and/or Skill-Building Workshops Through over 40 events and programs including the Fords on Friday series, the Liberal Arts Career Conference, networking events, and more, alumni have dedicated time and resources to come back to campus or join us virtually to share their expertise with current students....
