Supporting Polish Studies: The Copernicus Endowment

The Nicolaus Copernicus Endowment was established in 1973 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the great Polish astronomer's multifaceted genius. Initially created with the cooperation of students, faculty, and Polish-Americans of Michigan, the Copernicus Endowment is sustained today by the energy and financial assistance of hundreds of individual supporters. The principal goal of the Endowment is to enable faculty appointments, programming, and student fellowships for the Copernicus Center for Polish Studies. Income from the Endowment makes the Annual Copernicus Lecture possible, and ensures the continued scheduling of public events dedicated to advancing a deeper understanding of the people, culture, and politics of Poland.

To strengthen the Copernicus Center for Polish Studies and to promote in perpetuity the study of this historically important and increasingly significant country, the Nicolaus Copernicus Endowment Committee reaches out to prospective donors for the realization of this goal.
