In September, IWP signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Additionally, the Institute partnered with Liberty University by way of its Washington Fellowship Program. These will be the 7th and 8th universities, respectively, to partner with the Institute, and we are pleased to continue to bring outstanding students to our graduate and internship programs through these partnerships.

IWP signed a partnership agreement with UNC Chapel Hill in 2017 and is pleased to launch this new partnership with UNC Pembroke this year. With UNC Pembroke, IWP will review applications from current undergraduates in their third year of study at UNC Pembroke for pre-approved admission into a graduate program at the Institute. Furthermore, at least three students from UNC Pembroke will be selected for special financial benefits including a partnership scholarship of $2,200 per semester with additional merit-based awards also available.

Students who participate in Liberty University’s Washington Fellowship Program will have the opportunity to intern with the Institute. Through the new agreement, IWP will guarantee one opening each semester for a qualifying intern from the Washington Fellowship. Working in the nation’s capital offers a variety of practical experience in the fields of international relations, history, political science and statecraft.

IWP has welcomed interns from Liberty University in the past, including Tristan DeWitt and William Hungerford, and has welcomed students to its graduate programs form Liberty, as well.

“I have personally known Will Hungerford since he was a boy, and to have our paths cross once more at IWP and see him commissioned as an Army Intelligence Officer at Liberty has been a joy,” commented Chris Glass, IWP Senior Vice President for Professional Affiliations.  “What a delight to have these fine men and women from Liberty join IWP for their internships.”
