Smart Research, Leveraging Interns and Fellows to Enhance your Research Program
Smart Research, Leveraging Interns and Fellows to Enhance your Research Program

Authors: Dr. Karen Finkenbinder and Richard Parsons

This paper is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the general issues surrounding an internship program. It answers such questions as: What is an intern or fellow? Where do you find them? What are the requirements? What do they do? What are the legal considerations? What are the security issues? The second part is what we call a “How To” section. It is the nuts and bolts of starting an internship program. It is also the boring part, though efforts have been made so it doesn’t read like the U.S. tax code.

Hearts-and-Minds: A Strategy of Concilation, Coercion, or Committment?

Author: Lieutenant Colonel Karl E. Nell

This monograph presents an investigation of the concept’s colonial antecedents, inception at the onset of the Cold War, subsequent U.S. interpretation during Vietnam, and modern application to post-9/11 conflict in order to elucidate its true nature—one which can only properly be understood as commitment. By understanding this evolution over time, an enhanced appreciation of its applicability to future conflict as well as its place within the irregular warfare canon may be more properly apprehended.
