Political Science Department Support

Your gifts create results we see everyday. As stewards of these valuable resources, we are striving to be worthy of investment. When you give to CLA in memory of a loved one, or simply because you care, your contribution is cherished and used to further that most human of endeavors — learning.

To make a donation to the Political Science Department, select "Other" from the drop-down menu and specify Political Science in the space provided.


Student Support

Scholarships, Fellowships and student awards have an incredible impact on our Nanook Nation! We believe that enhanced student aid, through restricted or unrestricted gifts, helps retain the most talented of students. With fewer financial concerns, these students can focus chiefly on their studies, thereby reaching their full potential.

Donating to the Gail Phillips Alaskan Leader Scholarship provides financial assistance for tuition and other related educational expenses to junior and senior Political Science majors at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

“The method of political science is the interpretation of life; its instrument is insight, a nice understanding of subtle, unformulated conditions.” 

-Woodrow Wilson, Howard Seavoy Leach (1925). “The Public Papers of Woodrow Wilson: College and state, educational, literary and political papers (1875-1913)”
