Each year, the Walter Roberts Endowment grants one student in the Global Communication M.A. program $1,000 for accomplishments in public diplomacy-related work and future career aspirations in the field of public diplomacy. This year, the Endowment is pleased to award Iris Froeba, a second-year student, the recipient of the Walter Roberts Award for Public Diplomacy Studies

Iris joins a distinguished cadre of Global Communication alumnae who emulate the teachings they received in public diplomacy while at GW and in their careers as public diplomacy professionals. Currently, Iris works as a program manager for the Transatlantic Dialogue Program of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, while taking courses in the evening at GW. Originally from Germany, Iris moved to Washington, D.C. in 2011 and worked an au pair for a year. She discovered her love for the U.S., intercultural exchange and transatlantic relations and decided to pursue a Bachelor's degree in International Business and Intercultural Management at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

Following graduation, she plans on taking the Foreign Service Office test in Germany.

Congratulations, Iris! Read more about Iris.
