RSTC Graduate Student Ryan Wold Is the Recipient of the 2021 John DePodesta Leadership Fellowship
The John DePodesta Education Innovation Fellowship Program is a partnership between Minneapolis-based ECMC Group and the University of Minnesota that enables graduate students to address fundamental challenges facing postsecondary education. As a recipient of this fellowship Ryan will receive a $15,000 feasibility grant to develop his research into a sustainable venture. This grant will complement Ryan’s research that focuses on the intersection of technical communication and entrepreneurship. Over the summer he will be working to develop a low-cost and easy-to-use software for creating, managing, and measuring the effectiveness of mentor programs. The Department of Writing Studies’ Technical Communication Advisory Board (TCAB) Mentor Program is excited to be a pilot partner for Ryan’s project.
