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.
The Center needs your generous support to realize its vision for increased funding of transatlantic scholarly cooperation and student scholarships. Our dedicated funds include:
The William E. Wright Graduate Fellowship in Central European History. This honors the Center’s founding director and assists a talented graduate student in Austrian or Central European History. Fund #7659.
The Robert A. Kann Memorial Lecture Series. This provides funds for the annual public lecture honoring the late Professor Kann. Fund #6477.
The CAS Scholarship Fund. This is a source of income for various undergraduate and graduate scholarships, including travel grants for study and research abroad. Fund #3328.
The R. John Rath Prize, a cash award, is given annually for the best article published in the Austrian History Yearbook.
