IAPSS operates financially independent and generates it budget solely based on own revenues through membership fees, shares from IAPSS events as well as online and print advertisement – in order to remain exclusively student-led, non-profit orientated and politically independent.

Donating For a Good Cause

However, we offer interested individuals and institutions to become a donor for a specific purpose aiming at supporting young political scientists either individually or collectively. Probable purposes include, but are not restriced to:

  • an award honoring the outstanding academic performance of a student of political science / young political scientist, e.g. for a paper presented at an IAPSS conference (IAPSS World Congress, IAPSS Autumn Convention) or the best Bachelor’s / Master’s thesis / PhD dissertation in a selected year or on an annual basis
  • a sponsorship for students of political science from less privileged origin attending an IAPSS event (travel grant)
  • financial support to a student research group, e.g. the IAPSS Academic Think Tank, POLITIKON or Encuentro Latino Americano (ELA), enabling a group of political science students to meet in person for research and publishing on a topic / theme of greater relevance
  • a financial contribution to the printed publication of an outstanding academic work of a political science student

Name Your Award or Sponsorship

Honoring your potential support to one of the proposed or another purpose, we provide you with exclusive right to name your award or scholarship according to your preference.
