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 Government majors. It is supported through the Donald Kreitzer Endowed Fund for the Study of Politics.
The recipient must be a declared Government major in good academic standing who is either a junior or a senior with at least one more semester of study. A GPA of at least 3.25 and a demonstrated record of commitment to public service are required.
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.
