You can have an immediate impact on students at Duke and in the Political Sciences Department by making a gift to the Annual Fund (select "Political Science Department Gift Fund"). Your contributions — which are allocated to address the greatest needs — make possible many of the financial aid awards and fellowships, hands-on learning experiences, and faculty-mentored research opportunities available to our students. A gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference to our university, our department, and most importantly, our students.

If you are interested in learning more about making a gift, please contact Chris Clarke, Senior Assistant Vice President for Trinity College and The Graduate School, at (919) 684-5074, or You may also contact Chris's assistant, Madeline Dreher, for assistance.
