Please consider making your annual contribution this year to support our Challenge Match
We have been "challenged" by a donor to raise $10,000 this year for GRADUATE STUDENT SUPPORT – if we raise $10,000, the donor will contribute an additional $5,000. The history department’s Graduate Support Fund provides assistance to students so that they can attend an important conference, travel to conduct research, access software or other equipment needed for their work, and anything in between that will help our students succeed in their academic endeavors.
