What is the Ashbrook Scholar Program?

The Ashbrook Scholar Program is an honors program at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio for students seeking a degree in political science, history, political economy, pre-law, international relations, or social studies education. 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 featuring 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.
