Every year, the Department of History gathers to honor the hard work and achievements of our students. The ceremony is usually held at the beautiful Morgan-Manning House in Brockport, and the evening is a favored event among faculty, students, and parents alike.
All awards and scholarships include a monetary award or a tuition credit, made possible by the generosity of alumni, faculty, students, and friends of the department. We want to thank each of them for the support and encouragement they give our students. Award amounts vary depending on endowment income for the previous year.
