German, Nordic, and Slavic - How Gifts Make a Difference

A top priority for the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic+ is providing deserving undergraduate students with scholarships, including those that help students afford the opportunity to study abroad. We are also keen to improve our funding for graduate students, including scholarships and fellowships for the academic year and summer. Competition for top doctoral students today is stiff. Our third major funding goal is to build support for events, such as lectures and symposia, that span our department’s three units and address topics related to the languages and cultures of multiethnic and multilingual communities in Europe, Central Asia, and North America. Any gift is greatly appreciated.

Why We Need Your Support

Our department offers undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to learn about the cultures of speakers of more than a dozen modern languages, large and small, from Danish to Yiddish. The diversity of our department is complemented by the interdisciplinary interests of our faculty and students, which connect us to multiple other humanities and social sciences departments and research centers. As a relatively young department that brought together three well-established older departments in 2016, we would benefit from funds that support activities across the entire department. Funding remains crucial to the growth of our undergraduate and graduate programs.
