GLI Scholarship

The newly established Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History (GLI) Scholarship at Marist College is awarded to students from GLI’s vast national network of affiliated schools who demonstrate exceptional achievement in the study of history. This unique and impactful collaboration between Marist College and GLI was cultivated and primarily funded by a family with long-standing commitments to both institutions. All incoming first-year students with a deep interest in history are eligible for one of four scholarship opportunities, and we encourage all who fit these criteria to apply and make a difference with their history degree from Marist.
