Support the Department of History

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) works with alumni, friends, companies, and other organizations to provide support and funding through a variety of giving programs. As enrollment and costs continue to grow, we must seek alternative sources of funding to ensure our students have the opportunities they deserve throughout their academic journey.

We hope that you will make the decision to support UAH and donate today. Make your contribution to one of the priorities below and help UAH continue to provide the highest quality of education in the region.
