Resident Scholar Gary J. Schmitt, who directs AEI’s Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies with colleague Giselle Donnelly, focuses on longer-term strategic issues that will affect America’s security at home and its ability to lead abroad, including a range of topics from NATO, to American institutional defense issues to strategy in the Asia-Pacific. Recent projects include an analysis of China’s rise and the nature of that challenge and a study on US and European approaches to domestic security and counter-terrorism since 9/11. Candidates must have excellent writing, analytical, and research skills; military experience and project-specific foreign language skills – especially German and/or French – are a plus.
Intern Scholarship Program
In the fall of 2019, AEI will offer up to six intern candidates a $1,000 monthly living stipend as part of a new need-based scholarship program. Our hope is to allow students who would not be able to do so without financial assistance to reap the academic, professional, and personal benefits of interning at AEI. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until Friday, August 2. To apply for the scholarship, please click here.
