Sam Orloff

history and political science major from Golden Valley, Minnesota, Orloff will be working on research pertaining to U.S. foreign policy and diplomacy. Orloff is the third Penn student to receive the fellowship since what was formerly known as the Carnegie Junior Fellows Program started more than 30 years ago; the others were selected in 2015 and 2009.

The Gaither Junior Fellows program is designed to provide a substantive work experience for students who have a serious career interest in the area of international affairs. Junior Fellows are paid a monthly salary and receive a benefits package.

Within his two College of Arts and Sciences majors, Orloff is concentrating on European history and international relations. He is also pursuing a minor in modern Middle Eastern studies. He recently completed his senior thesis in history on the memory of fascism and anti-fascism in postwar Britain with Assistant Professor Alex Chase-Levenson.
