Attitude of Gratitude

8,700 miles and 18 hours on his first plane ride separate Bazil Mupisiri ’18 from his hometown in Zimbabwe. Yet, it’s the milestones, not the miles, that truly set this first-year student apart.

Bazil (pronounced Bay-zl) first learned about Grinnell through the U.S. Student Achievers Program (USAP), which provides access to higher education “for determined, bright, low-income youth, producing highly-skilled and liberally-educated leaders for tomorrow’s Zimbabwe.”

Comprehensive List of Seminars

The culmination of the history major is a junior-senior level seminar that provides an in-depth examination of a period, theme, or issue of historical importance. This document is a comprehensive listing of all seminars that have been offered, have been considered, or will possibly be offered by members of the department faculty since the inception of these web pages. They are offered as a resource for those wishing to know more about advanced study in history within the department.

Kathryn Mohrman Fellowship

This fellowship, established through the generosity of Kathryn Jagow Mohrman '67, supports advanced student research or special projects receiving academic credit within the Departments of History and Political Science. The Fellowship encourages students to examine phenomena that they have not earlier confronted, and it encourages and rewards independent study. Although only applications for research on history or political science topics will be considered, students need not be majors in either of the two fields to apply.
