Scholarships for Political Science Majors

Political science majors have a variety of career options: politician, journalist, public policy – the list goes on. Before you start thinking about running for office, however, you’ll need to think about how you’re going to cover the cost of your education. Scholarships can help you to do so, and you may be eligible for one or more. Some scholarships available to political science majors are offered by organizations, such as the American Political Science Association and the Daughters of the American Revolution, while others are offered by individual colleges, such as the University of California Berkeley and Western Michigan University. To apply, students may be asked to submit an essay, letters of recommendation or transcripts. To learn more about scholarships for political science majors, continue reading below.
