The Dwight W. Hoover Scholarship for graduate studies in history supports: (1) Ball State graduate students or seniors who soon will become graduate students by next fall at Ball State. (2) Students who show special interest in and/or potential for research in community history and in the United States or abroad. If you are selected, you may use the funds to pay for tuition and or other expenses of study, including foreign travel. This award honors a former member of the departmental faculty noted for his research, particularly in community history. After Professor Hoover's distinguished service at Ball State from 1959 to 1991, a person who studied under his guidance established this award as a tribute to him. Other members of the student’s family have since joined in funding this scholarship. Application forms are available online. Students must submit the completed form, two letters of recommendation, and a 500-word statement to apply. This statement should explain your interest in advanced historical study with particular attention to pursuits, such as community studies or scholarly travel that are especially important to you. The department will notify you if you have won during the spring. The person(s) so honored will receive a scholarship that must be applied to educational expenses such as tuition, books or other material used in coursework, or research or travel expenses.
