What others have to say about IAFPE’s Fellowship Program

We are proud to endorse the IAFPE Political Fellowship Program. Being an organization that works to promote women in politics, we are especially excited to see strong representation of women on the IAFPE Executive Committee board and we look forward to continuing to assist IAFPE in developing youth from the Indian American community into political leaders.

– Executive Director Samantha Washburn-Baronie, Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus
The IAFPE program fosters curiosity, open-dialogue, and engages fellows in political issues that directly impact them. Saatvik Ahluwalia, a constituent, interned in my State House office, and as a former IAFPE fellow, took the lessons learned back to our district in a run for Lexington Town Selectman. I’m honored to collaborate with programs like this that inspire, connect, and provide resources for youth to pursue political careers.
– State Representative Jay Kaufman (D-Lexington)

The IAFPE Fellowship was instrumental in pointing me in the right direction. Working with Representative Kaufman showed me the incredible impact public servants can make on people’s day to day lives. It was a truly life changing experience.
