The discipline of history enables a student to know and understand the past. A scholarship based on such an understanding is helpful in dealing with present-day concerns with greater sensitivity. Historical enquiry is crucial to know the complexity of the present. A training of this kind is useful in further research as also in pursuing careers in the field of teaching, publishing, administrative services, mass-media, particularly journalism, human-resource development and social work. In fact, our students have found an opening and made a mark for themselves in diverse areas of work.
