Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of fall quarter 2020, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page. 


Several hundred scholarships are available to undergraduate students at UC Davis.

The UC Davis Undergraduate and Prestigious Scholarship Office administers $6 million in scholarships for which undergraduate students can apply. Merit is the primary basis for awarding scholarships, but other criteria also can apply. Some scholarships are designated for students within a specific major or college. Eligibility for other scholarships may be defined by participation in extracurricular activities; career interests; geographic origin; high school or community college attended; parentage; perseverance; or other conditions or characteristics.

Scholarships of interest to undergraduate students in history include:

  • The Michael Alan Anthony Grant for continuing students who have completed their freshman year at UC Davis, and who are not transfer students. This grant rotates between the departments of History and Economics.
  • The Richard Huberty Memorial Scholarship, for history majors with first priority given to American history students who have a demonstrated emphasis on research and study of California.
  • The W. Turrentine Jackson Scholarship, for an upper division history major with a demonstrated interest in the history of the United States.
  • Linn Family Award (honors only), presented to select honors students to travel to conduct their research.
  • The Andrew M. Siverson Scholarship, for undergraduate students in the Department of History with a minimum 3.5 GPA.
  • The internal Woodfill Scholarship, for the best undergraduate paper written during the academic year.
