Our department is very thankful for your support! Through the generosity of so many friends and alumni, we are able to offer funding opportunities to students and faculty of the department that have directly helped them to accomplish their goals.

Donations that come in to our department are put into the following priorities:

Assiting students

Each year, we offer our majors (undergraduate and graduate) scholarships/fellowships based on academic merit, research/career interests, and financial need. We provide our graduate students yearly research (GRA) and teaching (GTA) assistantship positions. We fund student organizations and groups within the department, such as Model UN and the Undergraduate Student Council. We sponsor students applying for honor societies in the political science field, student research, and student travel to academic conferences (most recently to the 73rd Annual Class of 1971 Student Conference on U.S. Affairs at West Point).

Aid the department

From printing paper to event spaces, there are many things our department accounts for in just one semester. These commodities are essential for maintaining an engaging and contemporary academic environment for our students. Faculty also benefit by having the means to purchase necessary materials, and in addition, being able to invite guest speakers to meet with students and enhance their lessons.
