Support opportunities for our students!
Students in the Class of 2021
In the Political Science Department, we only use gift funds to support opportunities for our students. We have funded a range of activities including student travel to present papers at major national conferences, and summer internships in the government and nonprofit sectors.
“The Political Science Department helped me to earn certifications in Civil-Military Coordination, Operational Logistics, and other aspects of UN Peacekeeping Operations through online courses offered by the Peace Operations Training Institute. These certifications have helped qualify me for next-level opportunities in the area of conflict resolution in the Horn of Africa.”

“With the Political Science Department's contribution to my REAL scholarship, I was able to spend a summer in Washington DC researching the intersections between immigration policy and criminal justice. The summer truly ignited my passion for public service and helped me better understand how government works on the federal level."
