Priorities

Elliott School Student Aid

Elliott School Student Aid ensures that talented students, regardless of financial resources, can take full advantage of an Elliott School education. Student aid helps reduce the loan burdens of GW graduates, so the cost of their education will not limit their ability to make their mark on the world. A contribution of any size to support student aid bolsters the power of education and the promise of tomorrow’s leaders.

ESIA Annual Graduate Fellowship Fund

This fund empowers students to pursue a master’s degree that would otherwise be outside their financial reach. As a school of international affairs, we know the importance of enrolling a diverse student population comprised of all backgrounds and nationalities. Graduate fellowships allow students from the U.S. and around the world—particularly those from developing nations—to obtain an Elliott School education at a cost that will not set them back from their pursuit of changing the world.

The Elliott School Dean’s Fund 

The Dean’s Fund, which enhances the student experience, amplifies academic programs and expands opportunities for students to hone their professional skills. The fund enables students to conduct field research and present findings at conferences outside of Washington, DC. In addition, the fund helps graduate students meet with prominent employers around the country. Funds also support the graduate capstone program, in which students share their unique research project with a professional client. The Dean’s Fund enables our community to gather for alumni programming, ensuring that current students can meet and learn from leaders who share their Elliott School experience. 

The GW International Women of Elliott 

The GW International Women of Elliott (I/WE) is a leadership group for women, designed to raise the global visibility and connectivity of female leaders in the Elliott community. I/WE brings together women in leadership positions for robust dialogue on the unique opportunities and challenges they face. All funds raised through membership in this group support scholarships, with a preference for female Elliott School graduate students. Following a gift to support these scholarships, a member of the Elliott School development team will be in touch to discuss membership in the group.

The Ambassador Edward “Skip” Gnehm Jr. Fellowship 

This fellowship honors Ambassador and Professor Edward “Skip” Gnehm Jr., ESIA BA ’66, MA ’68, as he prepares to retire from academia in June 2022, following an illustrious 36-year career as a diplomat and nearly two decades of dedicated teaching at ESIA. As a diplomat, Gnehm was guided by wisdom he gained from the GW professors with whom he studied more than 50 years ago. As member of the GW Elliott faculty, Gnehm changed the lives of numerous students. The Gnehm Fellowship will help attract, retain, and support the most outstanding entering or continuing graduate students in ESIA’s Middle East Studies program, thereby continuing the Ambassador’s legacy.

The Elliott Equity Fund (EEF) 

The Elliott Equity Fund (EEF) aims to help GW Elliott attract and maintain a highly diverse student body through undergraduate and graduate tuition and non-tuition awards for outstanding students with critical financial need who will advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of international affairs. The EEF will expand financial support currently offered to students, enabling them to take full advantage of the many resources and opportunities an Elliott education provides. This support includes, but is not limited to, tuition assistance, grants to purchase textbooks, awards for study abroad, and unpaid internships, which are a significant training and networking opportunity but often unavailable to those who need to earn money to support their studies.
