Edmund Eglinski Prize for Study Abroad

Application deadline is December 1 for spring semester study abroad and April 1 for summer and fall semester study abroad. 

The Kress Foundation Department of Art History at the University of Kansas invites applications for the Edmund Eglinski Prize for Study Abroad. This $500 award, which was established in honor of the late KU professor of Italian Renaissance Art, Edmund Eglinski, at his retirement, will be paid against tuition for an undergraduate studying in Europe in art history or related fields, including KU language programs, if they have a cultural component. Candidates must have demonstrated an interest and excellence in the study of the history of art. Preference will be given to students majoring in art history. In the case of repeat applications, preference will be given to qualified applicants who have not previously received the Eglinski Prize.

How to Apply:

In order to be considered for this prize, applicants must submit a letter to the Edmund Eglinski Prize Committee describing the academic program in which they will enroll and their reasons for wanting to study in this program. Included on the letter should be the student's current mailing address, email address, telephone number, and KU ID number. Applicants must also provide a current copy of their advising report which shows all coursework.

Applications may be submitted electronically to:
