DPLST Anthony Deos Young Scholar Award

Anthony Deos was a young scholar of intellectual curiosity, creativity and tremendous promise. In his career Deos combined scholarly research with applied work in the communications, marketing, and public relations fields in the private sector and in government. In the early days of social media, even before digital diplomacy, Tony Deos’ innovative insights heralded how social media was transforming the practice and vision of public diplomacy. The Diplomatic Studies section in collaboration with the Anthony Deos Memorial Foundation believe in the value of advancing Anthony’s research and passions through support of our young scholars.
