Funding Nicholas Schmidle
Financial sponsors of Nicholas Schmidle, Institute of Current World Affairs (ICWA — founded in 1932) and New America Foundation (NAF — founded in 1998), both DC-based, are among the dozens, perhaps hudnreds, of non-profits involved in international and domestic affairs who fund scholars, researchers, journalists and writers to travel and report.
Schmidle is an interesting person. He did exceptional reporting from Pakistan while being funded by ICWA, visited some of the most dangerous areas of the country, and was booted by Pakistan in early 2008 for unexplained reasons.
