The Russian and East European Institute gratefully acknowledges the support of its friends and alumni. Gifts to the department are used to enrich student opportunities. For example:

Robert F. Byrnes Memorial Fellowship - This fellowship preserves the memory of the first director of REEI by supporting an outstanding incoming student. The current award consists of a stipend and fee remission for the first year of study and is renewable for a modest stipend in the second year.

  • Daniel Armstrong Memorial Scholarship - This endowment supports an entering freshman at Indiana University who plans to enroll in Russian or other Slavic department language courses for all four years of undergraduate study.

  • Armstrong family
    Armstrong Family with Essay Prize Winners
  • Daniel Armstrong Memorial Research Paper Awards - This competition is dedicated to the memory of IU Slavics alumnus, teacher, scholar, and administrator, Professor Daniel Armstrong (1942-1979). Awards are presented to students for papers written for a class in Russian, East European, or Central Eurasian studies taken during the previous year.

  • McCloskey Fund - This fund commemorates the life and work of former Congressman and REEI master's degree student Frank McCloskey, who dedicated himself to extending peace and democracy in the Balkans. The fund supports an exchange program that sends an IU student to study in the Balkans and a student or scholar from the Balkans to study in Bloomington and Washington, DC.

  • General Fund - Provides support for general program activities.
