Past sponsoring companies include:

“It was great to see what life is like as a lobbyist, working with Capitol Hill. I learned so much about the high-tech community, and everyone was so willing to advise me as I began my career!”
Meredith Whipple ’12, University of Texas at Austin
Hewlett Packard Intern

“I learned a great deal from my stay at the Technology CEO Council, but I was also highly impressed by the other sponsors of the Fellowship who I met at the issue seminar lunches. That the program is set up so that both students specializing in high technology and students specializing in government can participate on equal terms is another virtue that recommends the Tisdale Fellowship.”
John Ryan ‘08, Cornell University
Technology CEO Council Intern

“The Tisdale Fellowship was a great experience that will continue to influence my thoughts on public policy for the rest of my life.”
Kaitlin Gallup ’09, University of Michigan
Dell Intern
