The PCFR Fellows Member (Formerly Honorary Student Member) project is among the unique programs sponsored by PCFR. Identifying and encouraging graduate students whose interests coincide with the mission of PCFR is our way of replenishing awareness of our organization's international context.
To ensure trans generational expansion of global understanding, we invite carefully selected graduate students to join us as PCFR Fellows. These young people from local university graduate programs participate fully in all our activities..their obligation to us consists of their active attendance at our meetings and they are encouraged to be proactive during the Q & A period following a speaker's remarks. In fact, some of the most lively exchanges during the Q & A period are a result of the PCFR Fellow members involvement. During their tenure with us, they get to know us and we get to know them. Lasting relationships have been built and many PCFR Fellow members have gone on to apply for and become full members of PCFR.
In short, for one season, they are our guests as well as our ambassadors to their constituencies.
They are the future of this organization. To find out how to apply for this program please contact Conni Ingallina.
"The PCFR honorary membership program greatly enhanced my MBA program at Thunderbird by connecting students with fascinating speakers and a world class local community. This program is a unique opportunity that nourishes emerging leaders with a global mindset."

“PCFR is a great fantastic place to meet Arizonans who are active leaders in international affairs. I get to learn from not only the guest speakers, but the membership as well. As a fellow, I work with leaders that are driving the state’s global engagement to develop international opportunities.”
- Ian Curtiss
"I joined the Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations because I was looking for a community that shares my interest in international affairs. Being a PCFR Fellows Member has allowed me to learn so much from the PCFR community. I now have a clearer understanding of the important role Arizona plays internationally, the complexities of global business and government affairs, and an outlet to discus and learn about these topics. The PCFR events have enhanced my graduate studies and I look forward to participating in future committee activities."
