    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win history scholarships

    Once you’ve selected the opportunities that look promising for your situation, it’s time to start applying. Most scholarships receive many applications and can offer only a few awards. That’s why it’s important to put together a compelling application. We can help you put together the strongest application possible with a collection of resources, including how to write a scholarship resume and how to write a winning scholarship essay. Here are a few more resources to help you through the application process:

    Resources for history students

    American Historical Association

    The AHA is perhaps the best-known and largest national history organization. The website includes job postings, research and articles, and resources for teaching and learning history. They also offer a spread of grants and fellowships that are worth checking out. Membership in the organization comes with a host of other benefits, including conferences and additional access to databases and literature.

    National Coalition for History
