Gavin R. G. Hambly Scholarship
The Gavin Hambly Scholarship is a university-recognized annual scholarship awarded to one or more deserving undergraduate students, majoring in Historical Studies. The $500 scholarship honors the memory of Professor Gavin Hambly, who was a renowned historian of the Middle East and Mughal India and a beloved professor of Historical Studies in the School of Arts and Humanities.
Only Historical Studies majors with a GPA of 3.5 or higher are eligible. A student can become a candidate for this scholarship by self-application or nomination by a faculty member in Arts and Humanities. In the first scenario, the student must submit a 250-word personal statement, a short paper (5 pages or less) on a historical topic (preferably written for a class) and secure two academic letters of reference. The second scenario is slightly more elaborate: The student must be nominated by an A&H faculty member, who also commits to providing one of the letters of reference. After confirming that the student has a GPA of 3.5 or above, the student will be notified that he or she is a nominee. If the student chooses to compete, he or she must submit a 250-word personal statement, a short paper (5 pages or less) on a historical topic (preferably written for a class) and secure a second letter of reference. The deadline for submitting all materials is Friday October 19, 2018. Nominations will be accepted starting immediately. Send all materials and nominations, or questions, to Dr. Daniel Wickberg, Historical Studies Program Coordinator, [email protected]. Electronic submission is strongly preferred. Materials in hard copy may also be submitted to Prof. Daniel Wickberg, Mail Station JO31.
