History Scholarships
Due to the generosity of Alumni, friends, and former faculty, the History Department is fortunate to be able to offer three undergraduate scholarships each year. The Douthitt and two Del Barto are awarded by the department on the basis of academic achievement (highest GPA).

The department also gives honorary awards for “Excellence in History” to graduating seniors each spring; no applications are necessary for these awards.

Finally, the department offers a Murray Miller Scholarship once a year to the best essay submitted by history majors.
