Danyale Kellogg While a Sumners Scholar at Southwestern, Kellogg participated in The Fund for American Studies’ Institute for Leadership in the Americas in Santiago, Chile, and the Institute for Economics and International Affairs in Washington, DC, as well as served as a Texas Civic Ambassador through the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life at the University of Texas at Austin.

“Being a Sumners Scholar also brought me closer to a fellow scholar, Camille Martin,” Kellogg said, “which eventually led to our roles as the inaugural fellows for Southwestern’s Project for Civil Discourse. These were all incredibly important experiences for me as they exposed me to people and ideas I may otherwise have never encountered and helped me understand how civic engagement relates to my chosen field of national security.”

A graduate research assistant, Kellogg is a student in the Master of International Affairs program and also in the Global Health Graduate Program in the Texas A&M School of Public Health, where she researches joint U.S. Forces Korea-Republic of Korea (USFK-ROK) preparedness for a man-made or naturally-occurring infectious disease outbreak.

“In fact,” Kellogg noted, “I was in Seoul working on this research when the COVID-19 pandemic began!”

At the Bush School, Kellogg is a Women in Defense HORIZONS Scholar, Co-President of the Texas A&M Chapter of Alexander Hamilton Society, the Bush School Representative on Student One Health Association in the College of Veterinary Medicine, and the publications manager for European Horizons, a student affiliate of the Albritton Center for Grand Strategy. She also sits on the by-law review committee for Next Generation Global Health Security Network.

“During my time at Bush,” Kellogg described, “I have been privileged to collaborate with peers and scholars from the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs, the Albritton Center, and Uniformed Services University School of Medicine, to name a few. My graduate studies and professional development have been incredibly influenced by my time as a Sumners Scholar thanks to the financial stability this scholarship afforded me as an undergraduate and all of the incredible opportunities it blessed me with.”
