This summer IWP has launched a fundraising challenge — The National Security Leadership Challenge — which aims to fulfill a critical part of the school’s five-year Strategic Plan goal of increasing enrollment from 125 to 250. This increase will double the number of IWP graduates entering the fields of national security and international affairs each year.

These graduates become leaders who are capable of defending our country — and decent civilization everywhere.  It is therefore vitally important to the future of America and the free world that we significantly increase the number of IWP graduates serving in government.

IWP’s recruitment goal will require a scholarship and recruitment budget of $1 million for this fall. IWP’s Vice Chairman John Lovewell and his wife Cynthia have pledged $250,000 towards this goal. With this extraordinary gift, IWP is working to raise an additional $750,000 in time for the fall recruitment season.

To support the National Security Leadership Challenge, please donate online at or send your gift by mail to Dr. John Lenczowski, 1521 16th Street NW, Washington, DC, 20036.  Questions may be directed to Vice President for Institutional Advancement Tom Atwood at
