For Great Value Colleges, a passion for all things political science is about much more than being politically savvy or the desire to become a politician. Being involved in political science consists of educating yourself on the world around us, learning to think on your toes, acquiring skills to take part in well-educated and developed debates and much more. Students whose interest lies in American politics, international affairs, domestic developments in other parts of the world or political theory aim to learn about and work to improve situations for various groups—large and small—around the country and even the world.
So whether you’re on your school’s debate team, you participate in Model UN, you major in political science or take part in some other related activity, Great Value Colleges would like to reward you with a $1500 Political Science Scholarship. We believe that students who show passion for political science education and who have made an effort to enhance their education through political science extracurricular activities deserve to be rewarded.
