Luigi Einaudi Chair in European and International Studies was established by the Cornell Institute for European Studies with support from the Italian Government and the university in 1987 to honor Luigi Einaudi, first President of the Italian Republic, and his many contributions to the fields of economics, political science, modern European history and European integration.
The Cornell Institute for European Studies offers appointments as Regional Visiting Fellows to faculty at two- and four-year colleges in upstate New York who are engaged in teaching or research in any area of modern European studies. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and be either a U.S. citizen or a resident alien to be eligible for this appointment. Appointments last for one year, with the possibility for renewal for up to five years.
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.
