Fellowship Testimonials

Sharyl Pels

"This experience has been an invaluable opportunity for me to gain a first-hand look into a diverse sector of state government. By spending a short time in each division of the Secretary of State's office, I received the tools and training necessary to be able to fully understand the role of each division. Throughout my time with the office, I was always treated as a member of the team which allowed me to fully immerse myself in the central work of the office. I left my time as a summer fellow for the Indiana Secretary of State with a wealth of knowledge and a large network of contacts and friends that will help me stay involved with Indiana's public sector after college and in my future career aspirations."

"Working at the Office of the Indiana Secretary of State was a great experience. I was exposed to government and politics and was provided with the background that I needed before entering the field. The fellowship opportunity allowed me to sharpen my skills and gain a better understanding as to how our state government operates. Not only was I able to learn about the Office of the Secretary of State and its four divisions, I was able to meet other state leaders and get to know more about their offices as well. Overall this experience was very educational and exciting."
