Description

Scholarships are awarded only to Pi Gamma Mu members. Eligibility is for up to four years from initiation into Pi Gamma Mu. Scholarships are intended for the first or second year of graduate work in a student's first graduate degree program in the following areas of study: sociology, anthropology, political science, history, economics, international relations, public administration, criminal justice, law, social work, cultural geography or psychology. Business Administration is specifically excluded from consideration. Other interdisciplinary fields will be considered on an individual basis based upon the degree to which the social sciences are an integral component of the overall course of study. In such cases, applicants should submit a program description outlining requirements and coursework. No more than three scholarships will be given annually in any one graduate field. The statement of purpose (i.e., Why do I want to pursue graduate studies in the social sciences?) is quite important. It should include information about the applicant's commitment to the social sciences, be typed, and have a professional appearance. Winners will be notified in late spring, with the grants awarded in the fall. Only complete applications will be considered for awards. Previous recipients of Pi Gamma Mu scholarships are not eligible to apply again.
