Jalal Alamgir Memorial Scholarship

The Political Science Department is pleased to announce this year’s Jalal Alamgir Scholarship, to be awarded to an outstanding junior-level student in Political Science, International Relations or any other major in the University, who has demonstrated serious interest in and/or intention to pursue further study in the areas of democracy, development, and social justice. Focus on areas in the Global South is preferable but not a requirement. These issues were near and dear to the heart of UMass Boston Professor Jalal Alamgir, for whom this scholarship is named in memory.


Eligibility: any student enrolled full-time at UMass Boston with a minimum of 48 and no more than 100 completed credits (excludes credits that are in-progress)

Requirements: current transcript, resume with full contact information, and a 600-800 word essay that explains the student’s current and future interests in the areas specified above

Deadline: Please submit all applications to the Political Science Department Office by TBA.


For further questions about the scholarship or application process, please inquire with Professor TBA
