David E. Albright Memorial Scholarship

David and Ruth Albright

This scholarship was established to honor the memory of Dr. Albright by his widow, Mrs. Ruth Albright, and the Center for the Study of Global Change and is restricted to majors in the School of Global and International Studies. Dr. Albright received two IU journalism degrees, followed by international relations MA and PhD degrees from Columbia University. He worked in the Vietnam War’s Army intelligence service, the Council on Foreign Relations, the United States Information Agency, and as an Air War College professor of national security. Dr. Albright returned to IUB in the 1990s as senior research associate at the Global Center, where he frequently taught interdisciplinary courses on international security in the 21st century, brought in notable international experts to enrich his students' lives, and mentored individual students into unique international internships, scholarships, graduate degrees, and lives.

The purpose of this scholarship is to honor Dr. Albright's passion for international issues and continue his legacy of mentoring students by annually recognizing a deserving student, who has a major in the School of Global and International Studies and a strong interest in and commitment to international issues.
