The Richard S. Schultz ’60 Symposium Fellowship was established in 2017 as an endowed fund in honor of “Dick” by his wife of fifty years, Myrna L. Schultz, their children Marni and Alan, and his classmates and friends.
The fellowship enables Norwich undergraduates, from any academic discipline, the opportunity to pursue areas of inquiry and experiences that will promote and expand their understanding of the past and how it impacts the present and future. Through research, travel, and inquiry the Schultz Fellow and faculty advisor will offer perspectives for us to face the future with better understanding and confidence.
After a wide solicitation and competitive selection process, this annual fellowship is granted by the Norwich University Peace & War Center to an undergraduate student for a single project that may involve additional Norwich undergraduate students. The award includes a $2,500 grant.

Project: “How the People’s Republic of China is Weaponizing Water Ports to Control Business, Politics, Perspective and Trade in Tanzania”
“As a Richard S. Schultz Colby Symposium Fellow, I have been able to critically examine and analyze the significance of China’s investments in Tanzania, specifically through their influence and control of deep-water ports for military, commercial, and political purposes. As a result, I have a much fuller understanding of how international diplomacy, business strategy, and economic development converge to create opportunities for U.S. security risks.” – Nicole Navarro ’21
