New Scholarship to Support Study Abroad for History Section Undergraduates

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 or Ireland for one semester or more.  

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 contact the Academic Programs Abroad Office.  If you need to speak to your advisor about the program, do not hesitate contact either James Egge or Philip Schmitz

For study abroad for the fall term or the full academic year, you need to apply for the program through the Academic Programs Abroad Office by the preceding February 15th.  At that time, you should also submit a scholarship form to the Department of History & Philosophy.

For study abroad in the winter term, you need to apply for the program through the Academic Programs Abroad Office by the preceding October 15th. At that time, you should also submit a scholarship form to the Department of History & Philosophy.

Scholarship for Travel Courses

For students who wish to travel and study with University faculty, the Department of History & Philosophy offers three different  scholarship funds, which provides up to a $1000 award for history section majors taking an EMU history class that travels as part of the course.  Preference will be given for international travel.  Eligible programs include the winter-break travel classes, including the annual program that goes to Rome and Florence, and summer term programs like the Cultural History tours.  Apply to Academic Programs Abroad Office to reserve a place in the program of your choice.  For the scholarship, you must apply through the Department of History & Philosophy by November 30th for the winter break classes and March 15th for summer term travel.  Applications are here.  More information on the individual scholarships can be found at the bottom of this page.
