The History Section of the Department of History & Philosophy is pleased to announce the establishment of the Pamela Graves Scholarship for Study in the United Kingdom and Ireland, a $1500 award supporting History Section majors and minors attending a college or university in the United Kingdom for one semester or more. We are particularly interested, in this first year of the award, of encouraging students to think about studying abroad in the winter term of 2014.
Study abroad can be one of the most exhilarating experiences of a college career, but the expense of such study can put it beyond the means of many Eastern Michigan University students. The Graves family, in memory of Pamela Graves, a beloved seventeen year member of the faculty, seeks to help students to travel and broaden their experiences. The award is intended to help defray some of the costs over and above typical Eastern Michigan expenses like tuition and room & board, making at least some study abroad programs in the United Kingdom, particularly the program at the University of Derby, within reach of most students.
All History Section majors and minors in good academic standing are eligible to participate
Students interested in exploring Study Abroad should attend the Study Abroad Fair, Sept. 17, 2013, 300 Student Center, 10-2, or browse the Academic Programs Abroad website. If you need to speak to your advisor about the program, do not hesitate contact either James Egge or Philip Schmitz.
For study abroad in the Winter of 2014, students need to apply for the scholarship at about the same time they apply to study abroad, in early October. Application forms will be available by September 23rd for this fall's scholarship and we will accept those until October 15th. For study in subsequent academic years, students need to apply by the Department’s scholarship deadline in late January.
