Advocacy Program
The American Political Science Association (APSA) Advocacy Program advances the discipline of political science by educating policy makers and the citizenry about political science scholarship and education. We seek to increase federal support for basic and applied political science research and to promote independent peer review. Our activities address funding priorities across the discipline. The APSA is a member of the Consortium of Social Science Associations, the National Humanities Alliance, the Coalition for International Education, and the Coalition for National Science Funding


APSA also advocates on behalf of political scientists and political science departments through letters, statements, and direct advocacy. Please contact Abby Paulson, [email protected], for further details.
