As per the donors request, the primary focus of these scholarships will be on America’s use of “soft-power” and the tangible benefits of cultural awareness in international affairs. Some of the key themes of interest include human security (Economic security, Food security, Health security, and Environmental security), conflict resolution, and personal diplomacy. The focus here is on alternative uses, strategies, and tactics to ensure America’s security, at home and aboard.

Ben Franklin was a dedicated leader who may not have been a warrior but showed how soft power can help a small nation survive.   Info Page
