Investigating events and ideas of the past can lead to future career success. Although history degrees receive a bad reputation like other humanities, they can provide great return on investment. According to PayScale, the average lifetime ROI for history majors is $537,800! The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that historians make $61,220 and museum curators earn $56,990 each year on average. Affording the advanced degrees required for these titles can become expensive though. Luckily, these are just 20 of the scholarships for history majors to nip tuition costs.
