We want to thank the Robertson Foundation for Government, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to helping government meet its talent needs by identifying, educating, and motivating U.S. graduate students to pursue federal government careers.  Established by the family of the late philanthropists Charles and Marie Robertson, and named in their honor, the Robertson Foundation for Government pursues a mission that was central to Mr. and Mrs. Robertson’s philanthropic activities: strengthening the United States government and increasing its ability and determination to defend and extend freedom throughout the world by improving the training and education of men and women for government service.

The Robertson Foundation commissioned these reports by seeking the technical assistance of GovLoop, the leading knowledge network for 100,000+ public sector professionals.
