Women In Defense 2011 HORIZONS Scholarships Awarded 



The National Defense Industrial Association’s Women In Defense affiliate awarded HORIZONS scholarships this fall to six students.

“Seeing so many candidates pursue STEM-related fields — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — was gratifying,” said Brenda McKinney, Women In Defense HORIZONS scholarship director.

The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage women to pursue careers related to U.S. national security and defense and to provide development opportunities to women already working in these fields. Since 1990, 110 HORIZONS scholarships totaling more than $150,000 have been awarded.

This year’s winners are: Sarah Charlton, Tufts University, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Security Studies, Islamic Civilizations, $12,000; Kathryn Bonnen, Michigan State University, Computer Science, $6,625; Paula Koch, George Washington University, Security Policy Studies, $4,000; Kayla Hinrichs, Missouri State University (Army ROTC), Defense and Strategic Studies, $4,000; Charlotte Wygant, George Washington University (Navy ROTC), Middle Eastern Studies, $4,000; Anna Marie Pavy, Georgetown University, Biohazardous Threat Agents and Emerging Infectious Diseases, $500.
