The Jalal Alamgir Memorial Scholarship

The Political Science Department is pleased to announce the 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 of 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.
