History 301 Scholarship Application

The Department of History offers up to two $500 scholarships to History Majors who are completing an unpaid internship and want to receive academic credit through History 301 (History at Work: Internship Seminar). These scholarships are $500 each and will be credited towards students’ tuition to cover the cost of enrolling in the course. All History Majors are eligible to apply, though priority will be given to those who are on their first internship and/or do not have other significant work experience.
