ISH-DC is pleased to recognize Bob Abernethy for very generously renewing his financial support for ISH-DC’s Abernethy Scholar Program. His contribution will provide residential scholarships for 10 graduate students living at the House and attending Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).

Since 2016, Bob has made a critical difference in the lives of 37 students, giving them the opportunity to live in our unique community and study at SAIS. Bob not only provides funding, but also actively supports and checks in on his Abernethy Scholars, meeting with them when he is in Washington. The morning after our 2018 Global Leadership Awards Dinner where he was in attendance, he joined an excited group of this year’s Abernethy Scholars for breakfast.
As one of our past Abernethy Scholars said, “it meant so much that Bob believed in me.”
Thank you for believing in our students.
