The Harold Wade, Jr. Memorial Fund Fellowships is designed to supplement the College’s career counseling by bringing back one to two black graduates each year to meet with all students. The returning fellows are from all walks of life and all age groups, and they share their Amherst and post-Amherst experiences with students through participation in classes, information meetings, and lectures.
