Gifts made to this unrestricted fund allow the Chair of the Department of Political Science the flexibility to directly allocate funding to areas within the program with the most pressing need. Your generosity provides for scholarship awards given to students with the highest academic standing and the greatest financial urgency. Assistance will also extend to global study abroad and co-op opportunities for CSSH students, as they study and work in companies, government agencies, and NGOs across the world. Your gift boosts student research, as political science students actively participate in finding real-world solutions to global problems alongside faculty members at research programs, centers & in other department initiatives. Whether you're providing our students with new classroom equipment or enrichment opportunities, your donation will directly empower Department of Political Science students, faculty, and staff. We graciously thank you for your support!
"The political science department uses donations from alumni, faculty, parents, and friends to expand opportunities for our students to study abroad, conduct research, and attend conferences that expand their knowledge of politics in the world around them. This supports life-changing experiences such as research on poverty in rural Peru, working with non-profit organizations in Thailand, and internships at the British parliament. "
"In linking a rigorous academic experience to co-op and other experiential programs, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities amplifies the value of the liberal arts to our culturally diverse, global society. Your investment will drive rigorous intellectual inquiry and enlightened discourse."
"Both the International Affairs Program and Political Science Department at Northeastern have afforded me opportunities beyond what I could have ever imagined that I would achieve in my undergraduate career. Thanks to the brilliant faculty members that I formed relationships with during my classes, I have been able to participate in research all around the world--an experience that dramatically enhanced my academic success. My experiences at Northeastern have not only been educational, but inspirational in guiding me towards the topics I am truly passionate about."
