NEW! Diversity Focused Research Paper Contest

We are excited to announce that the Political Science Graduate Student Association will host a Diversity Focused Research Paper Contest for PLS undergraduate and graduate students.

 This project upholds the College of Social Science's and Department of Political Science's diversity, equity, and inclusion principals while cultivating an inclusive and welcoming college environment that celebrates a diversity of people, ideas, and perspectives.

 Funding support from the department and minority politics section has allowed us to offer awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for graduate and undergraduate paper submissions.
