The Henrik Birnbaum Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Henrik Birnbaum Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by Professor Marianna D. Birnbaum, the late Professor Henrik Birnbaum’s wife, to preserve the memory of one of the most eminent scholars of Slavic languages and literatures and to support students of the Doctoral School of History at CEU. It provides scholarships to fund research projects focusing on the Medieval and Renaissance periods in Europe or to enable the recipient to participate in one of the events organized by the Inter-University Center in Dubrovnik. According to the statutes of the Fund, only PhD students are eligible for support.

If you would like to support this memorial endeavor, please contact the Departmental Coordinator: Csilla Dobos: or click on the  blue "support us" ribbon at the top of the departmental homepage. You can find the Charitable intent form here.
