Robert A. Ryan History Scholarship

 

Established in 2002 due to the generosity of a Professor of History in the department, Robert Ryan.

 

Scholarship Competition:

The History Department announces a competition for the Robert A. Ryan Prize for next academic year (2014-2015). We typically give the following awards:

• 3 senior awards at up to $4000 each
• 3 junior awards at up to $3000 each
• 3 sophomore awards at up to $2000 each

All applicants must:

  1. be a history major enrolled for at least one semester of the 2014-2015 academic year,
  2. have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in history classes and a 3.0 overall, and
  3. have enrolled in a minimum of 9 credits of history at IC.

If a student has not completed 9 credits, they must ask their history professors to sign a form attesting to their current course grade(s). If you meet these prerequisites, please submit 3 papers you have written from at least 2 different history classes. In addition, provide a brief cover letter contextualizing your papers and explaining how they illustrate your approach as a student of history.

The deadline for applying for this prize is Monday, March 3, 2014. Please submit your portfolio either in hard copy to Muller 423 or email your submissions to Jason Freitag. Late submissions will not be considered.
