UPDATE: December 2018
Andrew Ertl, previous winner of the Jim and Anna Hyonjoo Lint Scholarship in 2016, is currently studying at Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government, where he is pursuing a Master of Public Policy. Andrew said of his current program, “What I can say about Oxford, is that the curriculum here is quite a bit more technically difficult than my last master’s program. Still, I really appreciate the wholistic approach the school takes with regard to policy, and its foundations–I’m learning a lot.”
Andrew, being a History major, has expressed his enjoyment in being surrounded by so many old structures in Europe. He says, “It feels like I’m on a vacation while I’m earning a degree.” He has been able to do a bit of traveling so far, having visited Stonehenge and Bath. Soon enough, he plans to visit Scotland, Ireland, and everywhere in between.
In honor of Veteran’s Day last month and directed towards Mr. James R. Lint, Andrew said, “I just want to say, that I am in awe and inspired by veterans like yourself who gave so much more than myself. You all paved the way for someone like me and not a day goes by that I don’t reflect on that.”
Andrew continues to be proud of his association with the Lint Center for National Security Studies and we look forward to watching his continued success.
