Dambach has been recognized by his alma mater, Oklahoma State University, for his career devoted to service and peace. His classmates established the “Dambach Peacebuilder Fellowships” – fully endowed scholarships for two students every year at the School of Global Studies. The theme of the School is “How will YOU change the world.” That is the purpose of the scholarships – to develop new generations to help make the world peaceful.

In addition, the OSU Provost, Jeanette Mendez, and Global Studies School Dean, Randy Kluver, announced Dambach’s induction into the “Henry G. Bennett Fellowship” – honorary recognition of global leaders. Dr. Bennett was the OSU president in the 1940s, and President Truman selected him to create and run the Point Four program, the original US foreign aid program, now USAID. The Fellowship includes 35 international luminaries like Tony Blair, Condoleeza Rice, and General Colin Powell.
The Bennett Fellowship recognition was announced at an Oklahoma State football game in front
of 65,000 fans.
The program on the campus included a talk/interview with Dean Kluver, Hank Hankla, and Dambach: https://insideosu.com/new?video=1_ts5fpuec
