The University of Texas at Dallas

The Gavin Hambly Scholarship Competition, 2013

A $2000 scholarship awarded annually in honor of the late distinguished historian of the Middle East and Mughal India and beloved professor of Historical Studies at UT Dallas.

Only Historical Studies majors with a GPA of 3.5 or higher are eligible.  A student can become a candidate for this scholarship by self-application or nomination by a faculty member in Arts and Humanities.  In the first scenario, the student must submit a 250-word personal statement and secure two academic letters of reference.  The second scenario is slightly more elaborate: The student must be nominated by an A&H faculty member, who also commits to providing one of the letters of reference.  After confirming that the student has a GPA of 3.5 or above, the student will be notified that he or she is a nominee.  If the student chooses to compete, he or she must submit a 250-word personal statement and secure a second letter of reference.

The deadline for submitting all materials is November 8, 2013.

Nominations will be accepted starting immediately.  Send all materials and nominations, or questions, to <>.  Electronic submission is strongly preferred.  Materials in hard copy may also be submitted to Prof. Eric Schlereth, Mail Station JO31.
