Who is eligible?

All history majors with a 3.5 GPA and above in their history classes are encouraged to apply to the Haatvedt and Norby history awards. You must be returning to Luther next year.

What do I need to do?

Please submit a cover letter and resume. Please use this as an opportunity to develop a cover letter and resume appropriate for a job application. In your future, you will tailor your cover letters to the specific job or award application you are submitting them to. For these particular awards, please read the “Why Study History” page and reflect on what you’ve achieved thus far in your study of history and how you plan to use your history education in the future.

We strongly recommend you visit the Career Center and workshop your application there. You are also encouraged to ask your academic advisor or a member of the history faculty for their input on your application.
