  • Scholarship Description
  • The purpose of the Ashbrook Scholar Program is to assist students in acquiring the intellectual and moral virtues required for thoughtful citizenship. We do this through sustained reflection on the writings of those who have thought most deeply and comprehensively about human nature and political organization, and the opinions, character, and actions of those who have most remarkably practiced the political art.

    All Ashbrook Scholars are awarded a modest annual scholarship toward their studies at Ashland University, renewable each year based on merit. There are also several other scholarships for which Ashbrook Scholars are eligible. In addition to tuition scholarships, Ashbrook Scholars frequently receive financial assistance for travel expenses to seminars and cost-of-living stipends for internships.

    While financial assistance may be part of what attracts students to the program, for most it is not what keeps them in the program. The high retention rate of Ashbrook Scholars has more to do with the challenge of meeting our high expectations, the rewarding sense of accomplishment in meeting those challenges, and the bonds they form with other Ashbrook Scholars, faculty, and staff.

    For more information and to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

by Susan Dutca

Scholars will launch an interdisciplinary journal next year, called The Journal of Controversial Ideas, where authors will be able to publish their academic work under pseudonyms due to "recent threats against polarizing academics."

November 6, 2018

by Susan Dutca

Research indicates that college students are expected to vote in record numbers in today's midterm election, in stark contrast to the nation's lowest youth turnout and voter registration in 2014. While forty percent of 18- to 29-year-olds say they will "definitely vote" in the midterm elections, "doesn't mean they'll actually cast a ballot on Election Day." Here are a few of the issues in higher education on which voters will have a say: [...]
