Recent Poli Sci graduate Jessica Garland has been selected as a 2018 Portz Scholar by the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC). The DU Honors Program submitted Jessica's thesis to a NCHC competition for undergraduate honors papers, and she won! Jessica is one of only four students selected from a pool of highly competitive honors students from across the country. Congratulations, Jessica!

Recent Poli Sci graduate Danielle Trujillo wrote a paper that won a national contest by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC). Her paper has just been published in the SSRC's Anxieties of Democracy series. Editors from the SSRC worked with Danielle to shorten her full research paper into an academic blog post. Danielle's post is based on her Capstone thesis from Professor Sperber's 2018 Capstone course. Congratulations, Danielle!
