Awards are based on the students’ undergraduate course work, GPA, GRE scores, extracurricular activities, and recommendations from political science faculty. Twelve stipend scholars are designated each year and receive a $4,000.00 fellowship that is disbursed in two $2,000.00 payments –one at the end of the first graduate year and one at the end of the second year on the condition that students remain in good academic standing. Additional applicants who do not receive funds from the Association may be recognized and recommended for admission and financial support into graduate political science programs.
