Support the Department
Private support gives the Department of Political Science an edge for excellence, allowing us to provide students with hands-on experiences, to reward top scholarly efforts, and to competitively recruit students and faculty.
Gifts to political science are used for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and for engagement activities like seminars, lectures, and community outreach. A gift may support an existing scholarship or fund, or it may create a new fund for current needs or an endowment to support programs into the future. Gifts may be made in honor of a faculty member or friend.
For questions about giving to the Department or establishing a new fund, please contact a CLAS development officer.
To make a gift via mail or securities, please visit the How to Give page on the UConn Foundation website.
