Alexander Bernard, a political science major in Arizona State University's School of Politics and Global Studies has recently been selected as an American Airlines Scholar by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

This scholarship consists of a $1,625 monetary award and was created through the generosity of American Airlines in order to support outstanding students who are seeking degrees in areas that are related to the diverse needs of the airline industry. There are only six American Airlines Scholars in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Bernard, a sophomore, enjoys the personal touch the School of Politics and Global Studies provides.

“What I like most about being in the School of Politics and Global Studies is that I feel like the faculty really cares about their students and want them to achieve the most in their four years at Arizona State and beyond,” Bernard said.

Now that Bernard has been selected as an American Airlines Scholar, he sets his sights to one of the programs offered by the School of Politics and Global Studies.

“Although I have not participated in many of the school’s programs, I am a College of Liberal Arts & Science Ambassador and I really want to participate in the Capital Scholars Program and other internships the school has to offer.”

Those interested in applying to a scholarship offered by the School of Politics and Global Studies, can visit the school's website. Each year the school awards over $10,000 worth of scholarships to deserving students.
