Your generous donation can create a life-changing experience for one of the many outstanding students in the Department.  Whether it is to support a student through a scholarship, to help a student defray the costs of a Field Course experience in Ireland, to assist a student with an undergraduate research project, or to help the Department bring leading scholars to JMU for our seminar series, your contributions can enrich the academic experience of our students in many ways. 


If you would like to make a contribution to a Department fund or scholarship, simply click on a GIVE NOW button to be redirected to JMU's Online Giving website, or you may contact Bill McAnulty, JMU Development Officer.
