Georgetown University – Masters of Science Foreign Service
Newcome entered Georgetown University’s Master of Science in Foreign Service Program with a desire to advance her Turkish language skills. She began studying the language as an undergraduate and further developed her speaking abilities during a summer semester abroad in Turkey. After serving in the U.S. Navy and then working in Russian military analysis as a civilian at the Department of Defense, Newcome believes a concentration in global politics and security will become a critical skill set that will serve her and our country in the future.
“I’m so grateful to receive the SoldierScholar scholarship that will allow me to fully immerse myself in the program and develop connections that will hopefully lead to long-term career paths in Turkish-area studies and policy. Thank you to SoldierStrong for your generosity,” Newcome said.
