You Make Us Great
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
The center needs your generous support to realize its vision for increased funding of transatlantic scholarly cooperation and student scholarships.
Our dedicated funds include:
- Austrian Studies Center Scholarship Fund
This is a source of income for various undergraduate and graduate scholarships, 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 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, and author.
