Summer 2021 | National

Five Posse Scholars were awarded prestigious summer internships as part of the Jeff Ubben Posse Fellows Program. Now in its fifth year, the program grants each recipient an opportunity to work closely with an industry leader and includes a $10,000 stipend.

The Office of California Governor Gavin Newsom, AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan, LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago CEO Dr. Tom Shanley and Civic Nation CEO Kyle Lierman will each host and mentor a Scholar this summer as part of the program.

The 2021 Jeff Ubben Posse Fellows are leaders in their communities who have demonstrated academic excellence as Posse Scholars. They are David Barbier Jr. (Syracuse University), Genesis Bernardin (Davidson College), Nathalie Boadi (Northwestern University), Jerra Holdip (Bucknell University) and Emma Tavangari (University of California, Berkeley).

The Ubben Fellows Program was launched in recognition of ValueAct Capital CEO Jeff Ubben, who served as Posse’s board chair from 2007 to 2016. Ubben fellows apply their sophomore year and must have a GPA of 3.7 or higher.
