Claudia Rattazzi Papka Memorial Fund

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 2023-24 academic year: November 27, 2023 and March 25, 2024. 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.

Dr. Papka
