Support the Department of History

The Department of History has benefited from a wide variety of donations and bequests. Thanks to generous donations from fellow historians, community members, and History alumni, we have been able to offer a wide variety of ways to support the department and our students, including student scholarships, public lectures, and departmental resources like the Underhill Reading Room.

If you would like to support the work of our faculty and students, please consider contributing to one of the calls for funding listed below.
