NSSI Awarded $136k Grant for Scholarship and Graduate Fellowship Fund

Larry Valero, Ph.D., director of UTEP’s National Security Studies Institute (NSSI), has been awarded $136,838 from the University of Texas System to establish an undergraduate scholarship and graduate fellowship program for students in UTEP’s Intelligence and National Security Studies (INSS) Program who have previously studied or plan to study a strategic language, including Arabic, Farsi, Mandarin, and Russian.

“The National Security Studies Institute and its INSS Program has a long history of placing outstanding multilingual students into significant positions of responsibility inside the U.S. intelligence community,” Valero said. “These merit awards will help identify some of our very best students—making them more competitive nationally with a significant scholarship or fellowship on their resume and language skills sets that are in high demand.”

Ten graduate fellowships and seven undergraduate scholarships will be awarded in the fall 2017 semester to highly talented and academically deserving INSS students who plan to pursue impactful careers in the United States intelligence community and the national security enterprise.
