Do they want me to write something political? What kind of things does this sentence include?

EDIT: It was an application for regarding to scholarship. I assume they are trying to search for a person who is socially active.

They're asking about your sociopolitical interests and if you're politically active.

So there's no need to go far afield. Answering those shouldn't be that complicated if you're interested in politics, if not it should be even easier.


Depending on who the sponsor is, they might not be asking about party politics. You could list work for charitable causes, protection of the environment, work in a sports club, etc. They ask if you have a well-rounded personality with interests beyond pure academia.

It would be a different case if the scholarship is from an overtly political organization.
