IWP and High Point University signed a partnership agreement to further education in national security, intelligence, and international affairs in December 2023.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to partner with High Point University to further education in the vital areas of national security, intelligence, and international affairs,” said IWP President Amb. Aldona Woś. “The High Point graduates who have come through IWP’s M.A. programs have been outstanding individuals and active members of our community, and we look forward to welcoming more High Point alumni to our campus.”

The partnership will allow High Point University students and graduates to receive scholarships of $2,200 per semester for IWP’s in person programs if they are accepted within IWP’s admissions guidelines. In addition, they will remain eligible for additional IWP merit-based scholarships. High Point students will be granted the opportunity to receive early assurance of admission to IWP if they apply on or after April 30th of their third year of college. Finally, High Point students will receive priority consideration for IWP’s internship program.

High Point University will share information about IWP’s programs with its students and faculty in international affairs, national security, international affairs, and related fields of study.

“The Life Skills developed at High Point University along with the practical experience gained at the Institute of World Politics will enable students to excel in their careers whether it be in diplomacy, national security, intelligence, or the corporate world,” said Nicholas Karas (‘14), a graduate of both High Point and IWP.
