The Center for Austrian Studies is funded in part by an endowment from the Austrian government and people, and in part by the College of Liberal Arts. The center also relies on institutional and individual giving in order to maintain the excellence of its programs and create new opportunities for scholars and students.

Choose a Fund

With generous support from our donors, the Center for Austrian Studies is able to increase funding for transatlantic scholarly cooperation and student scholarships.

Our dedicated funds include:

Austrian Studies Center Scholarship Fund - This fund is a source of income for various undergraduate and graduate students, including travel grants for study and research abroad.

William E. Wright Graduate Fellowship in Central European History - This fellowship, honoring the center’s founding director, assists a talented history department graduate student studying Central European history, particularly the Habsburg Monarchy and its successor states.

R. John Rath Award - This is an annual cash award given to the author of the best article published in the Austrian History Yearbook. The award is funded in part by contributions made in memory of Rath (1910-2001), a longtime Habsburg scholar and founding editor of the yearbook.

Robert A. Kann Memorial Lecture Series - This fund supports the Kann Memorial Lecture, an annual public event honoring a noted Austrian historian, lawyer, scholar, or author.

Austrian Studies Seminar Fellows and Publishing Subvention Fund - Supports the Center for Austrian Studies including the Seminar Fellows Program and newly established Publishing Subvention Prize
