Dobson: Want to be a PAF? Devote your life to GW

Senior Logan Dobson, a Hatchet columnist, notes how the Presidential Administrative Fellowship tends to favor the administration’s favorite undergraduate students.

The Presidential Administrative Fellowship is a good gig if you can get it. Students who receive the fellowship attend graduate school for free at GW, in addition to drawing a salary while working in one of our fine University’s myriad departments.

Apart from gold-name-badge production, it’s pretty hard to tell what we get from PAF. There certainly isn’t a large applicant base: Just 47 students applied this year – despite the application being open to all graduating seniors.
