Thanks to the generous support of alumni, friends, and faculty, the History Section is able to award more than $30,000 in scholarship support annually. Undergraduate scholarships and graduate scholarships help pay for tuition and fees, and other awards support travel and research. Potential donors are invited to contact Department Head Peter Higgins.
