Every year in May, the Political Science Association sponsors the annual Political Science Conference and the Sandison Memorial Lecture. The event is an opportunity for students and faculty to join together to discuss current issues in political science across the fields of public policy, political theory, international relations and American and comparative politics. Students have the opportunity to present and discuss research papers they have completed in the course of their studies in Political Science.
The 2018 PSA Conference is scheduled for Tuesday, May 8, 2018. A conference program with panels and times can be found here. Details of the Sandison Memorial Lecture, which coincides with the PSA Conference, can be found here.
The Hoover Prize is awarded to one of the student presenters who participated in the PSA Conference. This will be determined within a week or two of the conference by the Political Science faculty. The Hoover Prize is $250 and is to be used toward your education.
