The Paul H. Nitze Program offers:

  • three special seminars for each student
  • cultural outings to DC/Baltimore paid for by the program
  • special meetings with high-profile campus visitors
  • an international study tour paid for by the program
  • a stipend of $3000 per year for participants

The Nitze Study Tour

As part of the Paul H. Nitze Program, students participate in a study tour in their second year in the program, as the conclusion of their seminar NITZ 280--Leadership Seminar II.

Far from being tourists, Nitze Scholars and their professors meet people and see sites with the context of a full semester of study of the area, its history, and its issues today, thereby experiencing so much more of the people and the places even than most academic study tours.
