Why Support the Department of German?
Gifts to the Department of German have a direct impact on the daily lives of students and can be applied in a variety of ways.
We are happy to accept donations to any of the following funds:
· The Elizabeth Wylie-Ernst Fund: Named after Dr. Elizabeth Wylie-Ernst, an alumna of the Pitt German department and a professor here for many years, this prize provides funds for students to study abroad. The scholarship is awarded annually. Students apply through the department and recipients are selected by the faculty of the Department of German.
· The Lore Foltin Memorial Prize: Named in honor of the late Professor Lore Foltin, who served in the Department of German until the early 1970s, this prize recognizes the academic excellence of graduating German majors. Recipients are selected annually by the faculty of the Department of German.
· The German Development Fund: Provides short-term discretionary support for the department (undergraduate scholarships, undergraduate research, lecture series, study abroad, outreach activities, special events, etc.).
· The German Department Endowed Discretionary Fund: Provides long-term discretionary support for the department (undergraduate scholarships, undergraduate research, lecture series, study abroad, outreach activities, special events, etc.)
Due to a recent increase in demand for and availability of study abroad offerings in German-speaking countries, we would be most grateful for donations to the Wylie-Ernst Fund. Study Abroad is a life-changing experience, and we want to make it available to all students, including those who might not be able to afford it otherwise. Your gift to this fund makes it possible for more students to have a transformative international educational experience!
