[Ed. – Vindman’s golden parachute opens. The Pritzker Military Foundation was created by a retired Army officer who identifies as Jennifer Natalya Pritzker, a member of the wealthy Chicago Pritzker family. Vindman is the recipient of the first fellowship award.]
Retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was appointed as the Pritzker Military Foundation’s first Pritzker Military Fellow.
Vindman will be based at Lawfare, a blog dedicated to national security issues published by the Lawfare Institute in cooperation with the Brookings Institution.
“This grant will support Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s research, writing and public engagements on topics of national security, defense, civil-military affairs, and public service, over the next two-years,” the foundation wrote. “Through this fellowship, Lt. Col. Vindman will engage in a series of research projects including writing articles, lectures, and producing a manuscript on the subject of great power competition, which will also serve to satisfy a doctoral dissertation requirement.”
