Support History

The world needs leaders, innovators, thinkers and doers. The world needs problem solvers and global citizens that will confront the challenges and opportunities ahead.  Our alumni and donors play an integral role in ensuring our remarkable students are able to receive a world-class University of Saskatchewan education and become the next generation of leaders, professionals, and community members the world needs.

Department Priorities

We are striving to inspire students to succeed by investing in tomorrow’s thinkers and creators. We are seeking the critical philanthropic support needed to reach new levels of excellence in each of these areas for the Department of History.

Undergraduate Student Awards

We are seeking philanthropic support to increase the number of scholarships and bursaries available to support our undergraduate students.   

Together, we will create need-based bursaries to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to realize their full potential. Removing financial obstacles will provide access to a USask education for scores of students who could otherwise not afford to attend. 

New merit-based scholarships will reward academic achievement. Scholarships are our best opportunity to recruit the most promising students who will go on to change the world. Only you can make this happen.

Graduate Research Fellowships

Graduate students are researchers and scholars with the skills to make major contributions to their fields. Graduate fellowships allow us to attract the most promising students whose research will change the world. Your support will expand our graduate research fellowships and help train the next generation of researchers, teachers, innovators and thought leaders.


Make your gift to the Department of History today

It means a lot to receive these awards as it impacts my ability to complete my dissertation as a PhD student. These awards also help my community who will benefit overall from the research I undertake. Your investment into my PhD studies equips me with the research tools and qualifications to help Indigenous people in the future and to bring public attention to Indigenous people’s advancements.
