Ashbrook Scholar

A Serious Program for Serious Students.

The Ashbrook Scholar Program?

Finding the right college can be overwhelming. You can major in political science or history at almost any school. But which school will give you the best education and the best chance of success after you graduate?

Ashland University is recognized nationally as one of the top schools for political science and history. Furthermore, by coming to Ashland you also have the chance to become an Ashbrook Scholar.

The Ashbrook Scholar Program is an honors program for students seeking a degree in political science, history, pre-law, international relations, or social studies education at Ashland University. As an Ashbrook Scholar, you will take part in a rigorous academic program embedded in the liberal arts tradition that involves the study of the great works of Western Civilization and America. You will also read and discuss the works of our greatest thinkers and the speeches and writings of our noblest statesmen.

However, you won't simply be challenged inside the classroom; you will be challenged outside the classroom as well with exciting internship opportunities and events with prominent world leaders (past speakers include John Boehner, Mitt Romney, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Henry Kissinger, and Benjamin Netanyahu). The Ashbrook Scholar Program is a serious program for serious students like you.

To learn more about the program, fill out the form by the video above and we will send you a viewbook that will tell you all about the program. Plus, as a special gift to you, we will include a copy of our pocket Constitution booklet. The viewbook includes an application that will serve as the first step on your journey to becoming an Ashbrook Scholar!

"Learning from primary sources, coupled with discussion-based classes, is so important because it leaves nothing between you and the original ideas of the author. Primary sources force you to think for yourself and really understand an issue clearly, unmuddled by time or opinion. They are a lot more interesting to read than a textbook, too!"
