Opportunities for Political Science Students

Ham Grants

Several of our students receive a series of honors and awards each year. Ham Grants are among our most prestigious. 

The Elton W. Ham Scholarship Fund (est. 1975) is available for Kalamazoo College students pursuing a political science-related project.  The intent of the fund is to support and encourage the further pursuit of politics outside and beyond the regular college course offerings. All students are eligible to apply; preference is given to political science students. Allocation of funds will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Considerations include relevance of said activities to the aforementioned intent as well as the number of applications received.
