The Cal State East Bay Department of History is exceptionally fortunate in being able to award approximately $20,000 in substantial scholarships and academic honors every year, to approximately 20 History majors. You may learn more about the many scholarships we award here. We receive applications from History majors between January and February each year, and scholarships and awards are announced at our annual student history conference in May.

Generous donors to the Department of History make these scholarships and awards possible. Known collectively as the Friends of History, these donors are emeritus faculty and History graduates who share a deep commitment to the study of the past by diverse History majors and who share a love of Cal State East Bay.
