American Student Assistance (ASA) has established the Peter Segall Innovation Fellowship to improve career readiness outcomes for teens.
The Peter Segall Innovation Fellowship is named after and inspired by former ASA Board Member, Peter Segall, in appreciation for his legacy in spear-heading edtech solutions, and for his excellence in strategic thinking for effective product development that propels innovation.
The Segall Innovation Fellows is part of ASA’s mission to ensure that young people are able to attain the skills and knowledge required to navigate a complex post-high school world. Fellows will be presented opportunities, while working closely with ASA staff across the Research, Product, Marketing, and Partnerships functional areas to build the creative confidence and entrepreneurial mindset needed to build a better future for themselves and their peers.
Each year, Segall Innovation Fellows will have a different focus on solving real-world business challenges, including helping to create student innovation spaces, tackling complex business model and sustainability questions, participating in experiential workshops, and working with staff to develop new digital resources, delivery channels, strategic partnerships, and go-to-market approaches.
The 2023 inaugural fellowship will focus on data science designed to spur continuous innovation in our highly engaging, digital career readiness learning experiences which reach millions of teens and help them gain awareness of education pathways and career possibilities that match their interests, increase access to valuable skill sets, and give them the confidence they need to navigate a path to success after high school. The program will be a hybrid 6-12-month assignment which will be completed in person at ASA’s offices in Boston and online.
