Strengthening the intellectual foundation for our profession of arms.
January 15th, 2016 by Clare O'Neill
The Rob Chaloner Prize is awarded by the Institute for Regional Security (IFRS) annual in recognition of outstanding young strategic leadership. The prize of $1,000 allows the recipient to undertake further personal development of their choosing. The process is via nominations not applications, so if you have a junior to mid-level officer who fits the criteria, I recommend you consider nominating them for the Rob Challoner Prize so that their talents may be recognised.
From the IFRS website: “Rob Chaloner was an energetic supporter of the Institute for Regional Security from its very beginnings. He was particularly enthusiastic to see young strategic thinkers encouraged to strengthen their strategic analytical skills, understanding and expertise as well as their practical work, leadership and management capacities. In memory of her husband Frances Chaloner donated a sum of money to the Foundation in order to fund an annual prize in memory of her late husband.”
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the IFRS website and the following criteria apply:
