Student Study Abroad Stipends

The Savannah Council on World Affairs (SCWA) provides stipends to as many as nine students each year in support of their plans to engage in a study abroad program.  We believe that such programs increase an individual's perspective on world affairs and gives them a better foundation for future involvement in the larger community.

Each candidate must have already been accepted to a study abroad program, must meet our academic criteria, and must have a verifiable need for financial assistance.  Academic coordinators at Armstrong State University, Savannah State University and Georgia Southern University screen prospective candidates and provide us with a selection from which to choose.

Your generous donation can help us raise the level of support we provide or perhaps increase the number of students we support.

On behalf of the students, Thank You!

Dr. Mathew Kroenig

Dr. Kroenig makes the following assertion, and his defense of this of this position will be spellbinding:  Iran's advanced nuclear program may be the world's most important emerging international security challenge. If not stopped, a nuclear-capable Iran will mean an even more crisis-prone Middle East, a potential nuclear-arms race in the region and around the world, and an increased risk of nuclear war against Israel and the United States, among many other imminent global threats.

Matthew Kroenig, internationally recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on Iran's nuclear program, explains why we need to take immediate steps to a diplomatic and, if necessary, a military solution - now - before Iran makes any further nuclear advances. His book, "A Time to Attack", provides an authoritative account of the history of Iran's nuclear program and the international community's attempts to stop it. Kroenig explains and assesses the options available to policymakers, and reflects on what the resolution of the Iranian nuclear challenge will mean for the future of international order.
This dramatic call to action provides an insider's account of what is being said in Washington about what our next move must be as the crisis continues to develop.

Matthew Kroenig is an Associate Professor and International Relations Field Chair in the Department of Government at Georgetown University and a Nonresident Senior Fellow in the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security at The Atlantic Council. He is an expert on U.S. national security policy and strategy, international relations theory, nuclear deterrence, arms control, nuclear nonproliferation, Iran, and counterterrorism.

He is the author or editor of several books, including A Time to Attack: The Looming Iranian Nuclear Threat ( 2014) and Exporting the Bomb: Technology Transfer and the Spread of Nuclear Weapons (2010), which won the International Studies Association Best Book Award, Honorable Mention. His articles on international politics have appeared in such publications as American Political Science Review, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy,International Organization, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and USA Today. He has provided commentary on BBC, CNN, C-SPAN, NPR, and many other media outlets.
From May 2010 to May 2011, he served as a Special Advisor in the Office of the Secretary of Defense on a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellowship, where he worked on defense policy and strategy for Iran. In 2005, he worked as a strategist in the Office of the Secretary of Defense where he authored the first-ever, U.S. government strategy for deterring terrorist networks. For his work, he was awarded the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Award for Outstanding Achievement. Dr. Kroenig regularly consults with the defense, energy, and intelligence communities.
He has held fellowships from the Council on Foreign Relations, Harvard University, the National Science Foundation, Stanford University, and the University of California. He is a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
