The application process for the department’s scholarships for the following academic year (2009-2010) is now underway. Applications must be received by April 9 to be considered. Awards will be announced at the department’s banquet on Friday, April 24.
This year, in addition to our regular merit scholarships (Vance, Darter, Farmer, and Caldwell), the department adds a new scholarship, the William B. Crawley, Jr. scholarship in history.
Details about the scholarships and their requirements are located here: http://www.umw.edu/cas/history/scholarships__awards/default.php [scroll down to the bottom to see the specific requirements for each scholarship.]
Note that the department encourages people to apply for ALL scholarships for which they is eligible. Frankly, the more you apply for, the more likely your chances are.
