ISH-DC is very pleased to recognize Robert J. Abernethy and the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions for their very generous renewal of financial support for ISH-DC’s scholarship initiative. Mr. Abernethy’s gift provides residential scholarships for graduate students living at the House and attending Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Over the past four years, twenty-six graduate students from 18 countries have benefited from his generosity. Without this critical support, these students would not have had the financial means to benefit from living in ISH-DC’s intercultural community. Our Abernethy Scholars have graduated from SAIS and pursued successful careers at The World Bank, businesses, and nonprofit organizations around the world. All of them carry the lessons learned and friendships made here at the House with them.
