The Loeb Fellowship changed my career in many positive directions. The possibility to reflect on the profession with new perspectives allowed me to grow intellectually after confronting the dynamic ambience of the GSD and the other schools on campus. The wise advice and assessment of the always caring Loeb Fellowship staff was a key element during the year at Harvard.

The Loeb Fellowship allowed me to do research, teach and lecture while benefiting from participating in many other professional activities. The networking relationship derived from the Loeb Fellowship is a long lasting and very powerful one. The Loeb Fellowship was a dream come true.
