Scholarship Overview
An endowed scholarship, Carlton B. Smith Research Grants will provide a $250 award to the best graduate History thesis submitted to the JMU History department during each academic year. Theses will be judged according to their historical research, analysis and composition. The award will be presented in late spring and will include theses from spring and fall. All students are encouraged to participate in the competition. A committee of the History department faculty will judge entries which should be presented in the form of one unbound copy to the department designated individual as soon as possible prior to the graduation periods (May, August, December). The remainder will be used to fund graduate student research leading to completion of a thesis. These awards will be made by the department following a formal application and review.
