One week down!

March 07, 2015

Thank you to all our donors so far! We are one week into this fundraiser and already 15% toward reaching our goal. Please help us keep up the momentum by sharing, tweeting and spreading the word about our fundraiser!

We also encourage you to take a moment to hear from our students directly. Watch the video below to hear why going on this trip is so important!

We're almost there!

March 16, 2015

Thank you once again for your support of the UMass Political Science United Nations field trip! We are more than 80% of the way to our goal and still have more than 2 weeks to go! 

Please consider sharing our trip website on your personal social media sites and/or circulating our link via email. Any publicity you can help generate is appreciated!

Also, this trip has sparked lots of excitement from students, alums, faculty and more -- so much so that we're looking into hosting an informal alumni reception while the students are in NYC. This addition would allow our students to explore the UN during the day and hear about the varied career paths of Political Science and Legal Studies majors by night! Stay tuned!

As always, THANK YOU!

We made it! (with your help!)

March 17, 2015

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We reached our goal in just about half the time, and so *our students are going to the UN*!!

Ambassador Baibourtian spoke to the UN staff, and we've decided to send the students to NYC on March 30. Check in with us on social media at or @umasspolsci that day so you can see photos from the trip!

Our fundraiser will stay live for the next few weeks and any funds raised beyond our original $3000 goal will be used to provide additional networking opportunities for these students, including a reception with department alumni the evening of March 30. 

Thank you again!

P.S. We'll leave you with another video explaining how important this trip is to our students! Enjoy!

A Final Thank You!

April 10, 2015

Thank you all for your generosity in funding this trip. Our students had a terrific time at the United Nations, and it truly would not have been possible with out your help.

We invite you to read more about the trip in an article written by one of the student participants. 

And, again, THANK YOU!
