This fellowship was established in 2014 by former students, colleagues and family members in honor of the late Richard H. Ullman, the David E. Bruce Professor of International Affairs, Emeritus, at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. This fellowship enables recipients to engage in a one-year, career-defining practitioner experience in the field of international affairs that would exemplify the spirit of Dick Ullman’s life and works. One of Dick Ullman’s most memorable attributes was his unwavering commitment to mentoring his students, even after they had left the Woodrow Wilson School. He believed strongly in public service and did all he could to guide and help his students to find opportunities to serve. He also continued to advise them throughout their careers.
Richard H. Ullman was a distinguished scholar of international affairs at Princeton University for over forty years, ultimately as the David K. E. Bruce Professor of International Relations. He began his career at Harvard Univer
sity, and, while on sabbatical from Princeton, was the George Eastman Visiting Professor at Oxford University, where he had received his D.Phil. as a Rhodes Scholar. He educated generations of students and mentored many who have guided United States foreign policy for both Democratic and Republican presidents. Through his own service in the administrations of two presidents, his time on The New York Times editorial board, his leadership of Foreign Policy Magazine, his role as director of studies at the Council of Foreign Relations and through his many articles, Dick made important contributions to the country's pressing foreign policy discussions over many decades.
