Boise State University's History Department is committed to building a more diverse and inclusive presence for tomorrow's professionals in the discipline. We are pleased to announce our Graduate Fellowship for Students from Historically Underrepresented Backgrounds for AY 2019-20. This program welcomes applications from prospective domestic graduate students who identify as a member of a group that has historically been underrepresented in the History field (Black/African American, Hispanic American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Native Pacific Islander, per the Graduate College at Boise State University).

This one-year Graduate Fellowship provides full financial support, including a $15,000 annual stipend, registration fees, out-of-state tuition waiver, and health insurance. The awardee is eligible for additional support their second year, pursuant to satisfactory progress.

We offer two graduate degrees:

  1. A thesis- or portfolio-based Master’s degree in History (MA) geared toward students who wish to work in the field of History in academic settings.
  2. A project-based Master’s degree in Applied Historical Research (MAHR) that equips students for a number of fields such as Public History, policy making, and cultural resource management.

Full applications are due January 15. Visit for more details.
