The Marshall Center is pleased to announce two additional winners of the 2018 Alumni Scholars Program. Available resources enabled us to award two additional scholarships to the alternate winners selected last December. This year we received over 125 applications for 15 (now 17) available scholarships. The competition was extremely tough, and we congratulate all applicants on their outstanding work assembling their application packages. Below are the winning alternate selectees and their research topics.
Ms. Diana Zargaryan, Armenia: Challenges of Women's Inclusion in Peacebuilding and Decision Making Processes
Mr. Abdulrashid Isa Abdullahi, Nigeria: An Assessment of the role of the Civilians Joint Task Force (CJTF) in Counterterrorism Operations in Nigeria
If your proposal was not selected, please do not be discouraged. Your continuing work in international security studies makes an essential contribution to global peace and security. Marshall Center alumni from around the world are having a positive impact and continue to use the alumni network to resolve important challenges. All applications will be kept on file, and if we have additional need for information on your proposed topic, we will contact you.
Thank you all again for taking the time to apply. The overwhelming response reiterates how many alumni want to stay connected and to continue the work started here. We plan to offer this program for 2019, and we look forward to hearing from you. Applications for the 2019 program will be solicited in August of 2018. Announcements and instructions will be emailed to all alumni, and posted here on GlobalNET.
