Stephen Donovan

BOSTON—A Plymouth State University graduate has been chosen by the Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership (MBHP) for the Lowell Richards Fellowship for Leadership and Public Service. MBHP selects an undergraduate or graduate student who demonstrates leadership and a commitment to public policy to have the opportunity to spend a summer working in the affordable housing field. Stephen Donovan earned a bachelor’s in English from PSU in 2007; he currently works as a portfolio analyst at Boston Community Capital and is also studying for a master’s in Urban Regional Policy at Northeastern University.

“My personal goal is to better understand how things get done,” said Donovan. “I hope to develop a solid understanding of the economic planning process in order to become a more effective professional and an asset to the communities I work with throughout my career.”

Donovan previously worked with many nonprofit organizations, serving as an AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps member and team leader, traveling to different communities to complete service projects, including building rehabilitation in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

Donovan’s fellowship will be at the Massachusetts Port Authority, working with their Economic Planning and Development department. The fellowship was established in 2013 in honor of the late Lowell Richards, founding member and longtime co-chair of MBHP’s board of directors.
