Congratulations to Drexel's 2015 Carnegie Junior Fellows Nominees

January 16, 2015

Congratulations to Drexel’s nominees for the Carnegie Junior Fellows Award – Kailey Kluge and Kanan Gole.

Kailey Kluge (International Area Studies, BA ’15) is a senior International Area Studies student minoring in Russian and Political Science (advisor: Dr. Lloyd Ackert). Her interests lie in helping to improve US-Russian bilateral relations, helping to affect U.S. foreign policy in Russia, and becoming more fluent in Russian language every day.


Working with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in the Russian/Eurasian Studies Program, Kailey says, will allow her to help shape U.S. foreign policy in Russia while working with top scholars in her field.

During her time at Drexel, Kanan Gole (International Area Studies, BA ’15, Honors) worked on three research projects with professors in the Political Science department and at the Foreign Policy Research Institute (advisor: Dr. Joel Ostrich). Kanan also studied abroad in Spain and co-oped for a legal aid NGO in Pune, India, where she worked specifically on issues related to women's rights.

Kanan’s concentration in justice and human rights has led her to pursue placement in the Carnegie Junior Fellows’ Democracy Program to continue her research in human rights. After graduation, Kanan plans to take some time off and work, but eventually she hopes to attend law school to study International Law.


The Carnegie Junior Fellows Program is a highly competitive award that enables recent graduates to work for a year with a senior fellow in one of the program areas of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
