St. Lawrence University's chapter of the national political science
and government honor society,
Pi Sigma Alpha, has been awarded two grants by the organization's
Chapter President Evan Smith '08, Lancaster, PA, worked with chapter
members on the award-winning proposals; it is unusual for a chapter to
be awarded two grants at the same time. One grant will support the chapter's
annual banquet in the spring, including the funding for a comptition for
the best paper written for a government course. The award will be given
at the banquet and announced publicly at Moving-Up Day ceremonies. The second
activity grant will fund a film series, focusing on the portrayal of
the American presidency in film.
St. Lawrence University's chapter,
Alpha Psi, is the second-oldest in New York State; it began in 1949.
Pi Sigma Alpha is the
only honor society for college students of political science and
government in the United States. There are over 658 chapters of Pi Sigma Alpha
located on college and university campuses in every state of the
United States, and in Guam.
