Programs for undergraduate students

Travers Undergraduate Scholarship Program

The Charles and Louise Travers Department of Political Science and the Charles and Louise Travers Program in Ethics and Accountability in Government award annual Travers Scholarships in Ethics and Politics. These awards are intended to give recognition and encouragement to outstanding undergraduate students who plan to serve their country or community in an elected or non-elected government capacity sometime in the future. By integrating the study of ethics and political science, the Department of Political Science hopes to train future leaders who are sensitive to the ethical dilemmas implicit in a public career. In keeping with a desire to integrate education in practical as well as theoretical matters, the scholarship stipend is divided between support during the academic year and support during a summer internship. Two annual scholarships will be awarded, one to a male and one to a female student.
