MIT and Harvard Kennedy School Launch Collaborative International Studies Program

The Charles Koch Foundation announced a $3.7 million gift for MIT’s  Security Studies Program at the Center for International Studies in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs collaborative program, the Project on Grand Strategy, Security, and Statecraft.

The program, led by MIT professor Barry R. Posen and Harvard Kennedy School’s Professor Stephen Walt, will mentor the next generation of foreign policy scholars. Speaking on the gift, Posen said, “The fellows program will build a community of scholars dedicated to fundamental research on the most critical security problems of our time, and to bringing the fruits of that research to public policy. We greatly appreciate the contribution of the Charles Koch Foundation to this important endeavor, and the foundation’s recognition of the enduring importance of security scholarship.”
