Honors + Awards

External awards

Our Political Science graduate students have a track record of succeeding in securing prestigious external grants and awards. In recent years, our Ph.D. students have won Doctoral Dissertation Research Grants from the National Science Foundation and awards from non-profit and private-sector foundations. We also are proud of our many students who have received prestigious dissertation awards from the American Political Science Association.

To facilitate student success in securing grants, you should consult with the IU GradGrants Center (GGC), which provides free services to currently enrolled graduate students within the Indiana University system.
