Any continuing Political Science student planning to study or conduct research abroad may apply. Applications should submit: a resume or curriculum vitae;

  • a resume or curriculum vitae;
  • an official or unofficial transcript;
  • a statement describing the program the student plans to enter or the proposed research, if applicable, and explaining how it will contribute to the student’s intellectual development (three page maximum);
