Yonina Alexander To Study In Israel This Summer

Yonina Alexander, a Johns Hopkins University senior from Haifa, Israel, has been selected as one of 35 2004-05 Undergraduate Fellows with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies in Washington, D.C. She is one of two fellows chosen from Johns Hopkins.

Titled "Defending Democracy, Defeating Terrorism," the program is scheduled to begin Saturday, July 31, with a trip to Tel Aviv, Israel, which will last through Saturday, Aug. 14. This first part of the program consists of an intensive series of lectures by academics, diplomats and military officials from India, Israel, Jordan, Turkey and the United States as well as field trips throughout Israel. In addition to attending the trip to Israel, the fellows will travel to Washington, D.C., in January to learn more about America's leadership role in the war on terrorism.

The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies is a non-profit, non-partisan think tank based in Washington, D.C., that seeks to educate Americans about the terrorist threat to democracies worldwide. FDD produces independent analyses of global terrorist threats that explore the historical, cultural, philosophical and ideological factors that drive terrorism and threaten the individual freedoms guaranteed within democratic societies. FDD's Web site is www.defenddemocracy.org.

Alexander, 22, is majoring in international studies. She is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. H. Alexander and graduated from Shalhevet High School in Los Angeles. For information, contact Amy Cowles at 443-287-9960. For information about the fellowship program, contact Gina Gradinetti at 202-207-0190.
