The History Program proudly awards up to $7000.00 in scholarships to students each academic year.  Scholarship funds include the Walter A. Russell, the Nelson R. Sharpe, the Harriett Owens, the David Thomas Clapper, and the Mildred Chiuminatto funds.  Each year, the highest qualified incoming freshmen is awarded a $1000.00/year Russell Scholarship, contingent upon maintaining a 3.0 GPA.  The selected student is contacted by a member of the department during his/her senior year of high school.

Existing students should look for signs in Rhode Hall during the Spring semester each year.  These signs will indicate that they should pick up an application in the department office.  A scholarship committee will then award funds to qualified students.
