Named for an emeritus professor of the Government Department, who taught American politics and public law from 1961 to 1986, this scholarship is awarded annually in recognition of outstanding academic performance and a commitment to public service by undergraduate majors in the Law and Society program. It is supported through the Donald Kreitzer Endowed Fund for the Study of Politics.
The recipient must have declared the Law & Society supplemental major and be in good academic standing with a GPA of at least 3.25. The recipient must be either a junior or a senior with at least one more semester of study, and be able to demonstrate a record of commitment to public service.
The deadline is in early April of each year. Application forms can be obtained from the Department, or from Pat Vargas at email@example.com. Applicants should submit the application form, a resume and a personal statement not to exceed two pages, describing her or his academic record and public service. The award will be presented at the Government Department Awards Luncheon in April of each year, and the recipient is expected to attend.
