Of the “fellowship” positions, Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston describes such positions as “shady” and reports that said employees were “responsible for such special programs as Michelle Obama’s ‘Let Girls Learn’ initiative and others.”
“Some of these ‘fellowship’ candidates in Obama’s administration made up to $158,000 annually,” Huston continues.
Such positions appear to have been eliminated in the Trump administration’s budget.
