Giving to the Department


What Your Gift Can Make Possible

Your generosity enables the Department of German to directly support our present and future graduate and undergraduate students. We most appreciate your help with fellowships to cover tuition; travel stipends to attend conferences and visit archives; gifts to fund endowed lectures and teaching workshops; and financial assistance to strengthen collaboration with high schools and community colleges that offer German.

Thanks to Generous Donors

Mathey Scholarship Fund, the Ralph E. Nemeth Endowment, Roger Strauch and the Mosse Foundation, and several donors who prefer to stay anonymous. Their support is more needed than ever for the continued well-being and success of our department. Please consider joining our group of benefactors and contact us if you have questions. Your gift is tax-deductible.
