Sun Devil Giving Day
Thank you, Sun Devil Nation, for showing your strength through giving. By coming together on Sun Devil Giving Day, you are empowering students, advancing research, and improving lives. The impact of your support is immediate and will be felt for years to come.
The stories below illustrate how your donations can help the School of Politics and Global Studies serve students. These are only a few examples of how even the smallest donation will help students achieve their goals.
Support students academic success
The School of Politics and Global Studies awards over $10,000 worth of scholarships each year to deserving students based on academics, experience, personal stories, financial need and more. Many of the scholarships that the school provides are thanks to the generous support of donors. As a school, we aim to help each student reach their full potential and we ask that you join us in this endeavor by contributing whatever you can towards student scholarships.
Support political science graduate students
Stephen G. Walker Graduate Support Endowment Fund is in honor of emeritus professor Stephen G. Walker, who was a faculty member in the Department of Political Science from 1969 until his retirement in 2003. During his time at ASU, Dr. Walker produced numerous PhD students who have since obtained faculty positions around the world. Those former students, and even students primarily advised by other faculty, have contributed to this fund to show appreciation of Professor Walker’s mentorship.
Support Capital Scholars in Washington D.C.
Each year, roughly 16 students participate in the Capital Scholars Program with the School of Politics and Global Studies. Many of the internships that students get are unpaid, and the costs of the program prevent some of the most promising students from participating unless they receive financial assistance. Thanks to the help of donors, the school is able to offer scholarship opportunities specifically for deserving students participating in the program.
Support faculty research excellence
The School of Politics and Global Studies Faculty Research Excellence Fund provides faculty at the School of Politics and Global Studies with opportunities to pursue academic research in the areas of American politics, comparative politics, international relations, political theory, global studies, global security, political psychology, Latino politics, and more. Your generosity helps faculty conduct fieldwork, workshops, conferences, and trainings.
