Studying Abroad



Students find History to be a natural major when pursuing studies outside the USA.  To support study abroad, the department offers yearly scholarships to those attending accredited programs.  The Director of Undergraduate Studies will review study abroad course offerings with students to select courses that satisfy student interests and fulfill requirements.

Milton Plesur and Schoellkopf Awards for Study Abroad: Each year the History Department awards study abroad scholarships to qualified History majors enrolling in a recognized summer, semester, winter intersession, or year-long study abroad program.  Study abroad scholarship forms are available online and at the Undergraduate Studies Office of the History Department, 540 Park Hall, and should be submitted there in hard copy and in person.  The department holds a competition in the fall for spring semester study abroad and one in the spring for summer, fall, and full academic year programs.
