The Department of Political Science has a long and treasured history of enriching the education experiences of its many undergraduate and graduate students. Indeed, it was recently revealed that, over the past few decades, the Department has produced over 40% of USD's national scholarship winners (e.g., Trumans, Rhodes, Fulbrights, Borens, etc.).
The kinds of extra-curricular exchange programs, study tours, internship assistance—and the critical scholarships that help attract the wonderful students to our doors in the first place—would not be possible without the generous support of our loyal alumni. We are deeply committed to educating our young people for the many challenges they will face in our rapidly changing world and greatly appreciate your assistance in this endeavor.
