The University of Texas at Austin “Bobby R. Inman Award” for Student Scholarship on Intelligence Deadline June 30, 2015
Austin, Texas – The Intelligence Studies Project of the University of Texas at Austin is still accepting submissions for its inaugural round of an annual competition recognizing outstanding student research and writing on topics related to intelligence and national security.  The winner of the “Inman Award” will receive a cash prize of $5000, with two semifinalists each receiving a cash prize of $2500.  This competition is open to unpublished work by undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in degree programs at accredited U.S. higher education institutions during the 2014-15 academic year.  The deadline for submitting papers is June 30, 2015.

The Intelligence Studies Project was established at the University of Texas at Austin in 2013 as a joint venture of the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law and the William P. Clements, Jr. Center for History, Strategy and Statecraft in collaboration with the LBJ School of Public Affairs. The Project’s mission is to improve understanding of intelligence activities and institutions through research, courses and public events bringing intelligence practitioners together with scholars, students and the public.

The award recognizes more than six decades of distinguished public service by Bobby R. Inman, Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.).  Admiral Inman has served in multiple leadership positions in the U.S. military, intelligence community, private industry and the University of Texas.  His previous intelligence posts include Director of Naval Intelligence, Vice-Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Director of the National Security Agency and Deputy Director of Central Intelligence.  He continues to serve as a teacher and mentor to students, faculty members and current government officials while occupying the Lyndon B. Johnson Centennial Chair in National Policy at the LBJ School.

Dear all,
