Next Up on 13: How the John A. Golden ’66 Fellowship Prepares Students for Careers in Law and Medicine

Back to All Stories

On the latest episode of 13, join John Golden ’66 and current Golden Fellow Yiyan Zhao ’22 for a conversation about the Golden Fellowship program at Colgate.

This fellowship, endowed by Golden and the Golden Family Foundation, provides summer internship funding, advising, and programmatic and financial support for students interested in pursuing law school or medical school. 

Golden is emeritus chair of the Colgate University Board of Trustees and a generous University benefactor, having made significant contributions to a number of University construction projects and faculty endowments.

In 2006, Golden and the Golden Family Foundation established the Golden Fellowship, through which select, qualified sophomores and juniors interested in pursuing law or medical school receive financial support for unpaid internships; admission tests like the LSAT and MCAT; test-prep services, costs related to the graduate admission process, and travel costs associated with off-campus Golden Fellowship events.

Each episode of 13, Colgate’s award-winning podcast, digs into the work of a University community member by asking questions. Episodes highlight the wide array of academic disciplines at Colgate, with interviews featuring faculty from political science, sociology and anthropology, physics and astronomy, women’s studies, English, Africana and Latin American studies, and many more.
