Schlegel Prize for International Studies
The Schlegel Scholarships honor the memory of United States Navy Commander Robert Allan Schlegel ’85, who was killed in the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Established in 2002 through a fundraising campaign spearheaded by members of Chi Psi fraternity of which Schlegel was a member, the prize supports three initiatives:
- Support for W&L students to participate in foreign affairs conferences, including both the Student Conference on United States Affairs at West Point and the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference in Annapolis;
- Establishment of the Schlegel Prize for the best paper on foreign affairs or international relations in a given academic year;
- Support for student research projects related to international affairs.
