Bruce and Lucy Gerstein Holocaust Education Travel Fund

Dr. David Gerstein has established an endowed fund, named in honor of his parents, at Butler University that will support travel and research related to the study of the Jewish Holocaust. Additional information can be found on the CHASE website.

Rader Fund

The Peace and Conflict Studies Program (PACS) has grants available for summer travel to do research or service in the Middle East (in particular in Israel/Palestine). These grants of between $500 and $1000 are intended to help offset the cost of travel and should not be expected to cover all expenses. In the semester after your travel you will be required to make a presentation about your experiences and turn in a brief final report to the PACS Director. To apply, or if you have questions, contact PACS Director, Dr. Margaret Brabant,
