Caitlin Peterson Chosen for Washington World Fellows Cohort

Posted by Devin Felix on 19 January, 2021

Caitlin Peterson, a sophomore at Gibson Ek High School, has been selected to take part in the 2021 Washington World Fellows Cohort. Congratulations, Caitlin!

The Washington World Fellowship is an equity-based program that combines study abroad and college readiness training to prepare students to become leaders in their communities. This summer, if it is safe to do so, the fellows will study abroad for six weeks at the University of León in Spain, where they will earn college credit and live with local families. Upon their return, they will participate in two years of leadership programming, which includes SAT/ACT preparation, college application support, and unique opportunities to engage with the State Legislature.

This will be the fourth cohort to participate in the state’s global leadership program, which Lt. Governor Cyrus Habib launched through a partnership with the Washington State Leadership Board in 2017.
