DeConde/Burns Prize

The DeConde/Burns Prize is awarded to a graduate student judged to be the best in outstanding accomplishment in foreign relations generally, with a preference for students in U.S. foreign relations. It was established in 2005 with a gift from Dr. Andrew Farrand (PhD 1979) to honor emeritus Prof. Alexander DeConde, a former chair of the department, and Prof. Richard Burns of CSULA, the two men who, he says, taught him to “think and analyze and express myself clearly.”
