The fund was established in memory of Claudia Rattazzi Papka (1966-2000), Columbia BA (1987, Phi Beta Kappa), MA and PhD in Comparative Literature (1996).
This fund provides up to $750 toward 1) attendance at an academic or professional conference; or 2) research expenses (including travel). Since funds are limited, awards are made on a competitive basis.
There will be two deadlines for applications in the 2022-23 academic year: October 28, 2022 and February 1, 2023. If you have any questions or would like to submit your application please contact the MedRen Program Manager, [email protected] or the Program Director, [email protected]. The application form can be found here.
Any student funded by the Claudia Rattazzi Papka Memorial Fund must abide by any and all travel rules set forth by the university.
