Named in honor of Harold D. Woodman, a member of the Department of History faculty from 1971-1997, former Louis Martin Sears Distinguished Professor of History at Purdue, and past president of the Southern Historical Association, the Woodman Graduate Research Fund is made possible by the generous contributions of faculty, students, staff, alumni and alumnae, and friends of the Department of History. The Fund provides grants for travel to libraries and archives to conduct research for doctoral dissertations and master's theses. Applications for grant funding are reviewed twice yearly by the Graduate Committee which recommends awards to the department head. The number of awards made depends largely on the quality of the proposals and the available resources generated by the fund's endowment. The individual is also honored at the department’s Spring Awards Banquet by receiving a certificate.
