The Al Golin Fellowship paves the path for Roosevelt University students to lead successful careers in the communications industry. Fellows participate in specialized public relations and marketing workshops, gain mentorship, and build their professional network.

During the spring semester, Fellows also receive a cost-of-living stipend and can interview for post-graduate internships with sponsor companies.


The Al Golin Fellowship is open to Roosevelt seniors and graduate students who will graduate in spring 2022. As an Al Golin Fellow, you will learn from Golin executives and industry leaders to gain professional development, industry insights, and mentorship. Additionally, Fellows have the opportunity to interview for a post-graduate internship at the firm.

In order to apply for the fellowship, submit a cover letter, resume, and essay addressing two questions* in 600 words or less. A student's academic background will also be considered.

*Essay questions can be found on the application.

Al Golin (BA ’50) chose to attend Roosevelt University because of its inclusive culture, which appealed to him as a young Jewish man seeking his place of belonging. After finding success as one of the pioneering leaders in the PR industry, he showed gratitude to his alma mater by serving on the Board of Trustees for 16 years.

In the last decade of his life, Golin funded the Al Golin Scholarship in Communications at Roosevelt, which has benefited dozens of students from underrepresented backgrounds. His PR firm, Golin, has committed to sustaining his modern legacy at Roosevelt.


By sponsoring the Al Golin Fellowship Program, as either a corporate sponsor or individual donor, you help provide diverse students the specialized training and industry guidance they need to be successful.
