National Security Education Program seminar Dec. 5 at BYU

Brigham Young University students who wish to match their professional goals with a foreign language and study abroad are invited to attend a free National Security Education Program "Statement of Purpose" Seminar Monday, Dec. 5, at 4 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Valerie M. Hudson, professor of political science and one of BYU's top national security scholars, will instruct students on writing the Statement of Purpose for their NSEP 2006-2007 applications.

Hudson recently received a National Science Foundation grant, as well as national recognition for her book “Bare Branches,” which discusses the implications of demographic trends for China's foreign policy and U.S. national security. She teaches courses in international politics, foreign policy analysis and national security.

NSEP offers from $4,000 to $20,000 in funds for semester- and year-long study abroad to develop foreign language and area studies specialization. In return, recipients agree to seek employment in the U.S. Government, working in the national security field.

This award is within reach for many more BYU students than have received it in the past. Students do not need to speak the language spoken in the area where they plan to study abroad. They simply identify a study abroad program that fits their professional goals and develop a credible rationale.

For more information, please contact Cory Leonard at (801) 422-2980 or visit BYU Kennedy Center Scholarships at http://kennedy.byu.edu/student/scholarships.php. For NSEP details, visit http://www.iie.org/programs/nsep/nsephome.htm.
