Make a Gift to the History Department
With 75 history majors and only five scholarships specifically reserved for history majors and one scholarship that gives preference to history majors, the Department of History often has more deserving candidates than scholarships. I am proud of Tech’s history students and want to encourage their love of history. Would you be willing to support one or more history scholarships at Tech? In doing so, you increase the value of these scholarships and help us support future generations of students who share your passion for history.
