Scholarship recipients Brandon Bernard, Lara Herzellah, and their parents with Allan and Annmarie Woloszyn Nichter, benefactors of the Dr. Kenneth E. Cutler Scholarship.

The honors program of the Department of History is designed to honor graduates of the History or Social Studies programs who have consistently demonstrated ability and produced work of high quality in the discipline. The honors designation is given to students who achieve an all-college average of 3.0; an average in history courses of 3.25; and who earn appropriate grades in HIST 499 (Senior Honors Seminar) and HIST 201 (Doing History). For more information on the honors program, contact the chairperson.

The department gives a variety of awards:

  • The Chazanof Award recognizes student work in local history
  • The Gallagher Scholarships are awarded to minority students pursuing a career in education
  • The MacPhee and Mancuso Scholarships are given to promising History or Social Studies majors who have attained junior rank.
  • The Carnahan, Cutler, and Maytum Scholarships are awarded to incoming freshman.
  • The Kim Korhummel Scholarship was established by the SUNY Fredonia Class of 1994 in memory of Ms. Korhummel, a student in the department and a member of the Class of ’94, who died of ALS before graduating.
  • The Zimmer Scholarship is awarded to a junior or senior history major with career plans in law or communications.

The department also annually recognizes an Outstanding History major, an Outstanding Social Studies major, and an Outstanding History paper. Phi Alpha Theta, the history honor society, recognizes academic excellence.
