The Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Programs Support Fund

Each year students from our majors are recognized for their academic excellence and community service with awards funded by donations from our alumni. Students from varying backgrounds receive scholarships to assist them with the costs of studying abroad and engaging in field studies. The Charles Haynie Memorial Award recognizes a singular student for his or her commitment to civic responsibility and social justice.

We are able to recognize these students and broaden their academic experience because of the generosity of our alumni. If you would like to help us to continue and expand these opportunities you may donate to our program at the Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Support Fund.
