Racing for Scholarships - Political Science Department

Who We Are

Offering three majors and six minors, The Department of Political Science is an academic launch pad for students seeking skill sets in a variety of careers. Our students have ample options from our majors in Political Science and Public & Nonprofit Administration, to our minors in Elections & Campaign Management and Intelligence & National Security. Many of our 350 undergrads are national scholars, maintain excellent academic status, and actively participate in student-run organizations such as the PoliSci Club and Student Congress. We take pride in our local and national job placement, which extends to Washington D.C. and beyond. Our graduating seniors pursue degrees in law, and embrace a variety of opportunities including state legislatures and agencies, federal law enforcement, the diplomatic corps, political consulting, and nonprofits. 

The Project

We are racing to raise money for our scholarship fund. Help the OU Department of Political Science support its students and win the race! Glen Krutz, Daniel Pae, Keith Gaddie, and Tyler Johnson are all participating in a marathon to raise awareness about PoliSci’s student scholarships. Won’t you contribute to the cause and help us win this race? 

The Impact

Donations raised throughout our campaign will directly support student scholarships and graduate fellowships within the Department of Political Science. These scholarships will help us recruit and retain the best and brightest minds, keeping the doors of opportunity open to all future Sooners

Choose a giving level


Energy Booster

Help our students with an energy boost to the scholarship fund. This level covers the cost of a meal at Couch for students on campus.


Sideline Cheerer

Similar to when someone cheers at a race, our students need your encouragement to succeed. This donation covers a years worth of mandatory cultural and recreation services fees for a student.


Sole Supporter

Many of our students need support as they journey through their time at the University. A donation of $75 covers the cost of renting a textbook or purchasing a used one.


Motivated Miler

Help motivate our students to finish their semester strong. A gift at this level pays the cost of tuition and fees for approximately one hour of credit for an in-state student.


The Finish Line

Prevent our students from postponing their race toward graduation by contributing to their mandatory semester fees.
