WASHINGTON — Should American academia be churning out an army of miniature Seb Gorkas?

Presumably, Gorka would think so. Now, the former advisor to President Trump known as both a lightning rod for controversy and a buffoonish object of ridicule is getting a shot at influencing young minds.

Gorka is returning to government service with a new presidential appointment to a board overseeing scholarships to study languages and countries deemed strategically-important to the United States, the Trump administration announced Tuesday.

Gorka scored a four-year appointment to the National Security Education Board, a 14-member panel that helps guide a federal initiative established in 1991 known as the National Security Education Program, or NSEP. Since 1994, the NSEP has awarded scholarships to over 6,000 U.S. students. To receive the money, the students agree to later work in qualifying national security positions, according to the NSEP.
