Featured initiatives

Political Science Priorities Fund

Strength in research and enriched learning opportunities are ongoing priorities for our students. Support for the Political Science Priorities Fund provides financial support to students so they can devote more time and energy to participate in learning and research activities. Donations to this fund support student-led research projects, student travel for research and conferences, and community-based learning and internship opportunities.

Mark Zacher Fund

Support the Mark Zacher Distinguished Speaker Series, which brings prominent scholars in international affairs to UBC annually to provide public lectures and enhanced in-class learning. This program was established in memory of Mark Zacher, a beloved professor in our department for nearly forty years.
