Brettschneider Exchange

Cornell University - University of Oxford 

Through a generous gift from Cornell alum Mr. Michael Borkan, the Cornell Institute for European Studies has established a fund in honor of Mr. Borkan’s maternal grandparents, Abraham and Henrietta Brettschneider.

The purpose of the Brettschneider Fund is to facilitate academic exchanges between Cornell and Oxford University designed to promote scholarly interchange between the two universities, principally in the social sciences and humanities. Awards are made on a rolling basis.

Proposals and inquiries may be directed to the CIES Associate Director Jason Hecht.
