Wilson History and Social Sciences Grants
MBA is pleased to offer Wilson Scholarships to deserving and interested students rising 8th through rising 12th grades for summer 2017. Students who excel in history courses and are interested in pursuing fields such as history, political science/law, international relations, economics, historical archaeology, or anthropology in college are eligible for these grants. The purpose of these summer program grants is to reward excellence and to offer students the opportunity to pursue, explore, and strengthen their interest in history and related fields. Students may apply for a Wilson Grant for a pre-approved program (see list). Students may also propose participation in a program or research project of their choosing (ie, not on the pre-approved list), but must receive departmental approval of that proposal prior to submitting their applications. Please seek approval for it as soon as possible by speaking with the history department and providing information about the program to your current history teacher and to Dr. Bailey, Dr. Hardin, and Mr. McMurray
