The Andrew W. Marshall Foundation

“Strategy…reflects a cast of mind that focuses on shaping the future rather than reacting to it.” – Andrew W. Marshall

The Andrew W. Marshall Foundation (AWMF) is a private operating foundation that promotes interdisciplinary thinking on long-term U.S. national security issues. We encourage innovative perspectives, ideas, and analytical focus areas that foster new voices and generate fresh insights. Our work has included research fellowships, paper competitions, and a unique crowd-sourced chain-writing experiment.

The Foundation’s core values are:

  • Curiosity: The desire to learn, discover, take risks, and experiment.
  • Courage: The fearlessness to challenge long-held views with logical and credible analysis.
  • Openness: The embrace of uncertainty with an eagerness to have one’s work challenged.
  • Contribution: The drive to mentor others and actively shape the future rather than react to it.
