UCSB History Alumna Donates Funds for Graduate Student Award

2009 PhD Ingrid Dineen-Wimberly makes generous gift, to be matched by History Associates.

An excerpt from the article in the July 20, 2012 UCSB GradPost:

With gratitude for the assistance she received as a student, and mindful that “grad students need support now more than ever,” Ingrid established the Ingrid Dineen-Wimberly Award for parents raising children while working on their Ph.D.’s in History at UCSB. Her donation of $2,500, which she has committed to for the next 5 years, is being matched dollar for dollar by History Associates.

In June, the first two $2,500 awards were given to Munther Husain Al-Sabbagh, who is studying medieval commerce and exchange in the Indian Ocean basin; and Kenneth Charles Hough, who is writing on American perceptions of Japan before World War II.
