Johnston-Aronoff Scholarship

The History Department is pleased to announce the opening of the application period for the Johnston-Aronoff Scholarship.

The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a History student who will be a junior or senior in academic year 2014-15 and who preferably has an emphasis in the study of California and/or the Western United States. (The recipient must be planning to enroll as a full-time student – 12 units – in fall 2014.) Native American students who have graduated from either a Humboldt County charter or high school will be given special consideration.

The scholarship was established by Guy Aronoff, a lecturer in Humboldt State University’s History Department, and his wife, Judy Johnston.

The deadline to apply is March 2.

To apply for the scholarship, submit online, via the Scholarship button on the Financial Matters tab of your myHumboldt portal, the materials listed below. Make sure you are viewing the complete list of scholarships (not just “recommended” scholarships) and then do a search for “Johnston-Aronoff.”

A name and email address for a faculty member who can provide a recommendation for you. An email asking them to submit an electronic recommendation will be sent to them when you save or submit this application so make sure you’ve contacted them in advance. A writing sample from a Humboldt State history class, preferably on the history of California or the western United States. If you are a graduate of a Humboldt County charter or high school, or member of a federally recognized Native American tribe, supporting documentation such as a copy of a high school transcript or diploma, or tribal identification of some kind.
