Thank you friends and family; with your support during the last year we have raised close to $20,000 for the The Matthew H. Shea A11 Research Fund in Political Science at Tufts University (The Matt Shea Fund). With this support, we are delighted to announce that the fund is already being used and supporting students like Alexander Trubowitz.
As many of you know, Matt loved Tufts, political theory, and developing close relationships with faculty and fellow students in the Political Science Department. This fund supports research opportunities that bring together faculty and students in Political Science, and fosters the types of relationships based on intellectual endeavors that were so meaningful to Matt. All gifts made to the fund will immediately impact student and faculty research at Tufts, as is evident in the fund already supporting student research and meaningful collaboration with faculty. Our long-term hope is to endow this fund so that it might honor Matt’s memory and passion for scholarship in perpetuity.
