Alumna Spotlight: Meet Andrea Kiser, Human Rights Advocate

"What started as an undergraduate class on international relations slowly developed into a personal call to action. I knew and believed in the values that make the United States distinct -- and it perplexed me to find that all nations do not to operate under a similar rule of law, but instead many are ruled by violence. Aside from outright war, I noticed the prevalence of manipulation in leadership, the abuse of power, and the purposeful exploitation of enemies. Standing in stark opposition to the truths I believed about the dignity of human life and the inherent value of peace, these themes led me to study counterintelligence as a means of fighting injustice in the world."

Scholarships help students succeed at IWP and beyond

"Having any scholarship helps students relieve some of the burden of attending an institution of higher learning," comments S.M., a candidate for IWP's M.A. in Statecraft and National Security Affairs with a specialization in Intelligence.

"At IWP, a scholarship takes on a whole new meaning. With the tight-knit community of students and faculty, an array of exciting and interesting classes, and the knowledge that each scholarship recipient has been granted a special and limited opportunity, having an IWP scholarship is really quite an honor. This creates a fantastic opportunity to excel at IWP, to relieve some of the stress of paying for classes, and maybe -- for the truly adventurous -- to add a few extra classes taught by some exceptional professors."
