Drexel student Nevena Bosnic, a senior majoring in economics, was named a 2012 Carnegie Junior Fellow
Drexel University's Nevena Bosnic, a senior majoring in economics, was selected for the 2012 Carnegie Junior Fellows Program. This highly competitive award 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.
Bosnic became interested in the European crisis as a Vidalakis Scholar in Crete, Greece during her co-op job placement in the spring and summer of 2010. After returning to Philadelphia, Nevena pursued a research assistant position with Dr. Christopher Laincz of the Department of Economics and International Business in Drexel’s LeBow College of Business to examine the current economic climate in the Eurozone. Her most recent co-op was with the U.S. Department of State in the Economic Section of the US Embassy in Athens, Greece.
During her fellowship in Washington D.C., Bosnic will be working with the International Economics program under a Carengie senior associate Dr. Uri Dadush, a Harvard graduate and director in Carnegie’s International Economics Program.
“Eventually I want to contribute to formulation of global economic policy and this is the one place I can get a head start in understanding what it entails and how to go about making my goal a reality,” said Bosnic, who will join the global thinktank on August 1. “When I looked into the Carnegie Endowment I realized how greatly aligned it is with my personal ideals and my ideal career pursuit.”
