Patricia Weitsman Memorial Scholarship

I received this from Patricia Weitsman's sister:

Dear friends and loved ones;

We wanted to share with you the good news that The Patricia A. Weitsman Memorial Scholarship fund has officially become a permanent endowment, having crossed the $25k mark. It was so meaningful to have received this news just ahead of the first anniversary of my dear sister’s passing.

The first award will be decided in December 2015 for a student entering the War and Peace Studies Program in the 2016 academic year.

Thank you so very much for your thoughtful and loving contributions.

If you would still like to make a gift in memory of Patricia, please visit and note in the online form that the gift is in memory of Dr. Patricia Weitsman and request that funds be designated to The Patricia A. Weitsman Memorial Scholarship, or call 740-593-0732 to make a gift via phone.

With love,

 So, this is good news.  I learned at the ISA more about how incredibly influential, sweet, touching and tough Pattie was, so I have been thinking alot about her as the anniversary of her death approaches.  I am glad to hear, although not surprised, that the fund-raising effort has been successful.  The new security journal at ISA, Journal of Global Security Studies, is something she shepherded, so that there will be a couple of very tangible legacies in her areas of scholarship--at Ohio U and at the ISA.
