Resources and Opportunities

The Department of History encourages students to pursue the various funding and research opportunities offered by the department and the College to further their study of history outside of the classroom.
Golz Fellowships

Alfred E. Golz fellowships consists of three different categories that support research opportunities and internships for history majors and minors during the summer months: faculty-student research collaborations, student-designed projects and summer internships. These fellowships have been made possible by a generous gift from Ronald Golz ’56 in memory of his father.

Paul Nyhus Travel Grants

Named in honor of Professor Paul Nyhus (1935-2005), the Nyhus Travel Grants are intended to facilitate primary research in either an advanced seminar, an advanced independent study, or an honors project in history. In the past, students have used these grants to travel and conduct research to various institutions across the nation and the world.
