The Harlan Cleveland Award for Excellence in International Policy Issues 2014:
This year’s recipient is
Vittorio di Ventura. He is a native speaker of Italian and studied both
Chinese and Japanese languages for his region concentration in Asia, and he
studied abroad for the 2012-2013 academic year (both Fall & Spring
semesters) at our World Partner Program at Kansai Gadai University in Japan. In his final semester, he was an outstanding
participant in our Maxwell-in-Washington International Relations program, where
he interned at Asia Policy Point. Our Washington, DC, Center Director, Ryan
Williams, writes that this student is “extremely creative – one of the best writers
to come through the program” in recent years.
Vittorio completed his undergraduate studies in December 2013, and his
Bachelor of Arts degree was conferred magna cum laude by Syracuse University.
