Kennedy Fellowship Program


The Roger Kennedy Fellowship Program is a graduate-level certificate program through the Environmental Resources Policy Program in the Colombian College of Arts and Science (CCAS) at The George Washington University.

The fellowship is designed to help prepare current and future NPS leaders who are responsible for the preservation and protection of our public lands and cultural heritage. The fellowship is funded by the Friends of Roger Kennedy and the program was inspired from a gift from previous Director Roger Kennedy and wife Frances Kennedy.
