The Karen Kupperman Research Fellowship Fund

Karen Ordhal Kupperman, Silver and Emerita Professor of NYU, is a leader and founder of the field in Atlantic History.  She has exemplified the very best in doctoral student mentoring during her tenure at NYU.  By establishing the Karen Kupperman Research Fellowship Fund at NYU, we, her students current and past, her colleagues, and her friends, honor her by creating the opportunity for future support for graduate student research in her name.  The fund will support summer research for doctoral students in the field of Atlantic History.  Awardees will be known as the Kupperman Summer Research Scholars. Donations to the fund in any amount are welcome and should be sent to: New York University, Office of Gift Administration, P.O. Box 29303, New York, NY 10117-0275 with the following form.
