Hudson P. Shedd Scholarship Fund for National Security and Intelligence Studies


This scholarship is to honor the memory of missionary Hudson P. Shedd, the father of David R. Shedd, a member of the Board of Advisors to the PHC Strategic Intelligence Program and recently retired career executive in the CIA. It is designed to promote the undergraduate study and professional engagement of young people aspiring to the national security and intelligence professions.



Dr. Hudson Shedd was born on January 15, 1926, and entered the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ on October 26, 2012. He was the director emeritus of Gospel Mission of South America. Hudson Paul, named for missionaries Hudson Taylor and Paul the Apostle, was born in the small Bolivian town of San Pedro. His obituary in The Southern Sentinel recalled him as one who “faithfully ministered for Jesus Christ with spiritual gifts of mercy and teaching, always linked to a life of prayer and acts of service. He consistently lived out Paul’s words in Philippians 2:3-4, looking out for the ‘interests of others.’ He shared his faith by word and action, genuinely caring about and praying for hundreds of people.”
