The Armstrong Foundation, an educational non-profit located in Fort Worth, Texas, has awarded the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) a grant in support of its programming for the 2013-2014 academic year. The Armstrong Foundation provides support to institutions interested in the perpetuation of a free society, “the benefits of limited government and the basic principles of American ideals espoused by the founding fathers of this great nation.”  In a letter to the AHI, the Armstrong Foundation congratulated the AHI in its work in higher education reform and looked forward to the AHI’s “continued success.”

“This is the fifth year that the Armstrong Foundation has honored us in a competitive process with a substantial grant,” AHI Charter Fellow Robert Paquette commented.  “We are deeply grateful to Mr. Thomas K. Armstrong and the trustees of the Armstrong Foundation for their recognition of our efforts in defense of a traditional liberal arts education and its relevance to the maintenance of a free society.  Current events would suggest a certain urgency in that regard.”
