Applications are now open for the 2017 History Scholar Award

Each year, the Gilder Lehrman Institute’s History Scholar Award honors college juniors and seniors who have demonstrated academic excellence in American history or American studies.

History Scholars spend a week in New York City, where they attend lectures by eminent historians, go behind the scenes at The Gilder Lehrman Collection, and take historical walking tours.

Interested in applying for the History Scholar Award or know an outstanding college junior or senior? Please visit, share this email, or send us their name and email address, and we will follow up.

The application deadline is March 30, 2017. Please email or call (646) 366-9666 x17 if you have any questions.

We hope to see you this summer!
