CRA Hosts Tisdale Fellow

CRA was pleased to welcome a 2011 Tisdale Fellow as a summer intern.

Max Cho, a junior at Yale University studying cognitive science, spent eight weeks learning about science and technology policy in Washington through his work with the CRA Government Affairs staff and the Computing Community Consortium, and from the other Tisdale Fellows.

The Tisdale Fellowship Program brings college students to Washington for summer internships that explore current public policy issues of critical importance to the high technology sector of the economy. In addition to CRA, other participants in the program include:  Applied Materials; Business Software Alliance; Dell Computers; Philips; and Technology CEO Council.

On July 28, CRA hosted a luncheon for the Fellows, after which government affairs director, Peter Harsha, provided an overview of CRA’s activities.
