David-Herzog-Funds at Styrian universities

In the course of the events of 1938 Jewish members of the Karl-Franzens-University Graz were driven out of Austria. In memory of these events, and with the intention of fostering tolerance and understanding, the academic senate at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz passed a resolution by which the David-Herzog-Fund was founded on March 11th 1988. The fund awards scholarships to individuals whose projects develop intercultural understanding and research - especially in the field of Jewish history and culture (Jewish studies). Since 2005, the universities in Styria have universally supported the David-Herzog-Fund.


The David-Herzog-Fund is open to students and graduates of all faculties.


The fund was named the "David-Herzog-Fund" in memory of the rabbi of the state of Styria, citizen of Graz, titular extra professor and assistant professor of Semitic philology at Karl-Franzens-University Graz.


The David-Herzog-Fund-Scholarships aim to support intercultural understanding and learning - especially where Jewish culture is concerned (especially in the field of Jewish studies).
