  • 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*

* 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

The National Coalition for History is a group of organizations that uses its knowledge and resources to lobby for history-informed change in politics. This is a great organization to check out to offer inspiration into how you can use a history degree to change the world! For those considering taking their history degree in a political direction, consider citing this group’s work in your scholarship essays.

Organization of American Historians

For students interested in American History, this organization is a great way to plug into a national network of like-minded individuals. You can network with peers around the country, gain access to job postings, literature, and other discounts relevant to your work.

Frequently asked questions about history scholarships

History majors can get a variety of jobs, most of which lie in the research, academia, or consulting fields. Some of these specific positions include: academic researcher, heritage manager, academic librarian, or teacher. For a more complete list of jobs you can get with a history degree, check out this site.

What university is best for (studying) history?

Looking for the best college to pursue history at? As of 2020, some of the top-ranked universities for history include: Harvard University, the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, and Yale University. QS Top Universities provides a more complete list of the top universities for studying history.

Do history majors need an advanced degree to land a job?

There are many history majors who go on to find a career with only their undergraduate degree! That being said, if you hope to remain in academia, chances are you will eventually need an advanced degree. But remember – there is no rush. You can finish your undergrad as a history major, take a few years working in other positions in the field, and then return to school if you decide to pursue academia.
