Karen Dawisha Memorial Fund

The Havighurst Center has established the Karen Dawisha Memorial Fund to honor Karen L. Dawisha (1949-2018), the first Walter E. Havighurst Professor (Political Science) and the founding Director of the Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies.

Proceeds from the fund are used to support study abroad and/or innovative research by undergraduate students interested in Russia, the Soviet Union, or its successor states. All topics are welcome, but preference will be given to students interested in Russian politics and foreign policy. Recipients are chosen through a selection process conducted by the Director of the Havighurst Center.

Students interested in applying for this funding should contact Dr. Stephen Norris, Director of the Havighurst Center for Russian & Post-Soviet Studies, at norriss1@miamioh.edu
