Undergrad Named Finalist in National History Scholars Program

Paige Scofield, a history undergraduate and native of Boca Raton, was recently named a 2008 Gilder Lehrman History Scholar Finalist.  She is one of 50 students selected for the program nationally, which is sponsored by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.  

This summer, the finalists will take part in a one-week program in New York City designed to honor and support outstanding students of history. The students will meet with eminent history scholars, as well as history professionals outside academia, and visit important historical archives and museums across New York City.

Founded in 1994, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History promotes the study and love of American history. The Institute serves teachers, students, scholars, and the general public. It helps create history-centered schools, organizes seminars and programs for educators, produces print and electronic publications and traveling exhibitions, sponsors lectures by eminent historians, and administers a History Teacher of the Year Award in every state through its partnership with Preserve America.  The Institute also awards the Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and George Washington Book Prizes, and offers fellowships for scholars to work in the Gilder Lehrman Collection.

The Institute maintains two websites, www.gilderlehrman.org and the quarterly online journal www.historynow.org.
