Sophomore receives National Security Scholarship

Loyola announcement - May 4, 2005

Meghan Iverson, a political science sophomore at Loyola University New Orleans, has been awarded a David L. Boren National Security Education Program Undergraduate Scholarship.

A New Orleans native, Iverson will receive up to $20,000 to study abroad in Ukraine for one year, beginning this fall. Upon graduation, she will work for one year in the U.S. State Department or with the Department of Homeland Security.

The National Security Education Program was established by the National Security Education Act of 1991, which created the National Security Education Board, the National Security Education Program and a trust fund in the U.S. Treasury to provide resources for scholarships, fellowships and grants. It is guided by a mission that seeks to lead in development of the national capacity to educate U.S. citizens, understand foreign cultures, strengthen U.S. economic competitiveness and enhance international cooperation and security.
