Give to the Department of History

Message from the Chair

Your gifts to the Department of History at Ohio State University empower us better to fulfill our mission of publishing the very best research, providing excellent instruction to our students, and advancing the interests of the citizens of Ohio. Your generosity will enable a needy undergraduate to remain in school, assist an ambitious graduate student in travelling to an archive in the United States or abroad, supplement the department’s quest to retain the very best faculty, or otherwise help us to advance our mission.

By following the links below you may direct your contributions to nearly three dozen worthy causes. I would be very happy to discuss with donors other options for major gifts to the Department. Let me know if you have questions.

Thank you very much for your support of the Department of History.

 

COVID-19: Help Today

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak affects all of us. While life on campus and in our communities has changed, our commitment to our students endures. Together, we can support each other. Learn more about how you can help our students with financial need.

 

Student Scholarships and Funds

Undergraduate Students

In early spring semester, history undergraduates can apply for many of the following departmental awards and scholarships. (There is a separate application process for students in the Transnational History of World War II Program. Students should contact Professor David Steigerwald directly for information about the WWII Study Abroad Program.) 

Award-winners have the opportunity to meet and thank donors at a special luncheon, usually held in April. Due to COVID-19, we did not hold our traditional awards ceremony in 2020. For a list of past scholarship winners, click here.
