Announcing the 2017-2018 Hart Fellows

The Hart Leadership Program is pleased to announce our new 2017-2018 Hart Fellows.

Since 1995, the Hart Fellows Program has placed recent Duke graduates with community-based organizations around the world for intensive, 10-month projects. Hart Fellows conduct research projects in collaboration with their host organizations, while simultaneously developing their own understanding of ethical leadership as they encounter the social and political complexities of their field work. In the past 22 years, 95 Hart Fellows have served 74 different community partners in 38 different countries across six continents.

Paige Newhouse will spend her fellowship in Friedland, Germany where she will partner with the national NGO Caritas Friedland to provide support for refugees and migrants. Her interest in migration policy began in 2015, when she spent the year in Berlin working for the Berlin Policy Journal at the German Council on Foreign Relations at the start of the refugee crisis. Originally from Rushville, Indiana, Paige is graduating with a primary major in History and a secondary major in German.

David Rosen will spend his fellowship in Ketura, Israel, working with the Arava Institute, a leading environmental studies and research program in the Middle East. David worked on many water infrastructure and international development projects at Duke, particularly in El Salvador and South Africa. He was also heavily involved with J Street U, a student movement dedicated to supporting a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Originally from Dallas, Texas, David is graduating with a degree in Environmental Engineering.

Henry Warder will spend his fellowship in Moshi, Tanzania, where he will work with Nia Technologies and their partner clinic, the Tanzania Training Centre for Orthopaedic Technologists, to study best practices for 3-D printed prosthetics. At Duke, Henry worked extensively in the field of prosthetics—from volunteering at a prosthetics NGO in Quito, Ecuador, to founding an on-campus organization that designs 3D printed prosthetics for Durham amputees. Originally from New York City, Henry is graduating with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
