Study Abroad and International Programs

The Department of History does not directly administer student travel opportunities. That being said, all History majors are encouraged to travel within the United States and abroad, for conferences, classes, or research. The History Department Travel Fund provides financial assistance to students who wish to travel. The Department also encourages its majors to apply for competitive scholarships that will take them abroad; History majors Andrew Grubb and Kelly Schaller won English-Speaking Union summer scholarships to Cambridge University in 2004 and 2005 respectively, and another major, Elizabeth Russell, won the Mary Churchill Humphrey Scholarship to support two years of graduate study at Oxford University in 2006. History faculty have been active on leading student groups abroad: to Egypt, Greece, and Italy through the Kentucky Institute for International Studies: the United Kingdom through UofL's Global Studies Program: and Japan, China and India through UofL's Honors Program. In June 2007, Dr. John McLeod of History and Dr. Allen Furr of Sociology took UofL students to India for a course on Politics in India
