Supporting the Department

Financial gifts to the UA Little Rock History Department can have a tremendous impact on our students, faculty, and programs. Whether you support scholarships and/or research, your gift is truly appreciated.


Please consider supporting History Department students by establishing undergraduate or graduate scholarships. Contact Stephanie Purifoy, director of Development and External Relations for the College of Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences, and Education. You may also give by designating Department of History in the space for “Other” on the university’s Giving site.

Evenings With History

Come experience the joy of history in a truly historic setting with our Evenings with History series! An individual subscription to the series, at $50 annually, includes admission to all six lectures. A joint subscription to the series, at $90 annually, offers couples and friends a savings of $10.

Subscribers to the series help support historical research at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

History Institute Fellows

A Fellow of the Institute, at $250 annually, receives admission to the six lectures plus an invitation to special presentations for fellows only. This often includes a private evening with a noted author.

The Institute also offers a Life Membership at $1,000.

In recent years, annual University History Institute grants funded by the series have made major purchases of historical research materials for UA Little Rock. Subscriptions and donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
