Meet ILead’s Summer Fellows!


The Summer Fellowship is a 16-week program for highly engaged engineering students who want to grow the impact of their student organization and themselves as leaders. This year ILead has 10 student leaders that are developing and testing strategies for organizational development, learning from each other, interacting with ILead staff, professors, and senior leaders from the industry, and receiving 1-on-1 coaching and personal feedback.

Meet the Summer Fellows and read about the organizational change they are seeking to have through the Summer Fellowship!
