"I use the skills I gained from my experience as a Knauss fellow on a daily basis in my career. The writing and policy analysis skills that I developed as a fellow have been critical.

The experience of working with a group like that to evaluate stakeholder input, discuss policy ideas and develop recommendations has been valuable." - Angela Gustavson
