History Scholarships

Inquisitive nature, intuitive sense of curiosity, a constant thirst for knowledge – sound familiar? Then you may have the inner workings of a history major. The skill sets a history major acquires are applicable to an array of fields because generally studying history isn’t designed as a preparation for a particular profession. Rarely do history majors become historians; instead, most become teachers, writers, politicians, lawyers, researchers and enjoy fulfillment in a multitude of other fields. Taking your passion of studying events, people and landmarks of the past isn’t the worst way to earn your bread and butter!

Organizations like the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History regularly award history majors for their achievements but below are just a few history scholarships in our database perfect for those majoring in history. To find even more scholarships, whether based on your major or any number of other criteria, conduct a free scholarship search today.
