Weissman's Maciej Luczywo Wins Powell Fellowship

Maciej Luczywo is one of two Weissman students awarded a prestigious Colin Powell Fellowship in International Diplomacy for 2010.

Colin Powell Fellowship

Every year the prestigious Colin Powell Fellows program funds two high-achieving Baruch juniors or seniors. Winners engage in eight-week internships working either for the State Department in Washington or for the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in New York, depending on where they are needed. The fellowships are funded by the Weissman Center for International Business. Ambassador Carl Spielvogel, as a member of the WCIB advisory council, took the lead in developing this opportunity for Baruch students.

Spielvogel, who served as US Ambassador to the Slovak Republic in 2000 and 2001, received his BBA from Baruch in 1952, along with an Honorary LLD in 1984. He is also an Honorary Trustee of the Baruch College Fund. "The intention of the Colin Powell Fellowships and the internship program is to interest outstanding young people in the possibility of pursuing careers in the State Department," Ambassador Spielvogel said. Colin Powell is a City College graduate.
