Affordability is a top priority for students, which is why we offer a variety of scholarships and funding options to History students.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, the College of Arts and Sciences offered students more than $1.3 million in scholarships. Our department has several scholarship opportunities specifically for History students.
The College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Office has more information and a full list of department- and college-level scholarships available to current students.
The UMKC Financial Aid Office has more information regarding university-wide scholarships as well as resources about loan options, grants, work study awards, and other financial aid sources.
How to Apply
Currently enrolled students must fill out the Continuing Scholarship Application by March 1 to be considered for all departmental scholarships, as well as many college- and university-wide scholarships.
Some scholarships are only for students who show a demonstrated financial need and require the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It is recommended that all students complete the FAFSA each year, regardless of their financial status.
A variety of scholarships are available to new UMKC College of Arts and Sciences students thanks to gifts from UMKC alumni, the Kansas City community, and other generous donors. The CAS Scholarship Office has more information about freshman and transfer student scholarships.
