Each academic year, the Department of History awards over $40,000 to our undergraduates in order to fund student research projects, recognize superior writing achievements, and acknowledge outstanding students. History students at any stage of their academic career are eligible and should strongly consider applying. Writing prizes, scholarships, and research fellowships look great on resumes and can even lead to new opportunities. Applications for all the awards offered by the Department of History open at the beginning of each spring semester. Awardees are announced during the last several weeks of the spring semester.
For the 2023-2024 awarding cycle, applications will open on February 1, 2024 and will close on March 20, 2024.
Applications for History Department prizes, scholarships, and research fellowships should be submitted online, via the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub (WiSH). If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact email@example.com.
