One of our current priorities is to increase the available funding for undergraduate student scholarships. Please consider a gift to one of our undergraduate scholarship funds:
Robert C. Rogers Student Scholarship Fund
The Robert C. Rogers Scholarship, established in memory of Robert C. Rogers, awards $1000 to an incoming transfer or current first-year transfer student with a declared major in History. Preference will be given to students with demonstrated financial need. The scholarship is awarded annually.
Fred Anderson Endowed History Scholarship Fund
The Fred Anderson Scholarship, named for Professor Emeritus Fred Anderson, is awarded to an undergraduate History student who displays a strong interest in the history of the Americas, Africa, Asia, or the Middle East. Preference is given to students who are the first generation in their family to attend college. The scholarship is awarded annually.
