Alexandra Mahler-Haug: 2011 Winner of the Rockefeller Memorial Fellowship


Though she graduated from Dartmouth in June, Alexandra Mahler-Haug '11 has continued her engagement in both academics and the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center at Dartmouth College as a 2011 winner of the Rockefeller Memorial Fellowship. The Rockefeller Memorial Fellowship allows Alexandra to continue to work on her Honors Thesis in Government with members of the Dartmouth faculty and ultimately, pursue publication.
“The opportunity to work towards achieving publication of my research through the Rockefeller Memorial Fellowship is a wonderful culmination of my involvement with the Rockefeller Center,” Alexandra said. “I am truly honored to have the chance to continue to work on my research and take it one step further.”
Alexandra’s thesis, entitled “Going Corporate: Investigating state use of Privatized Military Companies in the post-Cold War era”, was also the recipient of the Rockefeller Prize in International Relations for 2011.
