On family vacations as a child, were you the one who always wanted to go see historic sites? Did you dream of visiting the Pyramids at Giza, the Parthenon, the ruins of Chichen Itza? Do you enjoy watching historical dramas, or educational programs on The History Channel? If so, you may be thinking of majoring in history. History can be a very rewarding and enjoyable major, but finding careers in this field can be a great challenge. For that reason it is very important to save all the money you can while attending school. History scholarships can help you toward that end.
Scholarships for history majors are quite common, and here in our compilation you will discover plenty of opportunities for financial assistance for undergraduates and graduates. Some awards are small, while others are large and can cover a year or two of college. While many are open to all history students, others are aimed specifically at students who are studying one particular aspect of history (colonial times in America, the Spanish Civil War, naval history, etc.). Note that if you are studying history as your pre-law, some of the more general scholarships in this list may apply to you. Additionally, you should have a look at pre-law and law scholarships for other options for financial assistance.
