Ohio Northern University’s Pi Sigma Alpha earns grant from the national organization
ONU’s chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society, has received a grant of $900 from the national organization to fund a speaker series.
The grant, written by John Curiel, a senior political science major from Waukegan, Ill., and Daniella Chambers, a senior international studies and political science major from Fremont, Ohio, will be spent on establishing an alumni speaker series for the spring semester to highlight the types of jobs one can get in the field of political science.
This is the 11th time in 12 years that the ONU chapter has received grants from the national organization. Totaling more than $12,000, these grants have funded a variety of activities, including travel to conferences, research, and bringing outside speakers to the University.
ONU’s chapter has been recognized as an “outstanding chapter” by the national organization five times in the past 10 years—more than any other chapter in the United States. The group is advised by Dr. Robert Alexander, chair of the Department of History, Politics, and Justice.
