Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events

The Center for Austrian Studies in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota was established in 1977 by the people and government of Austria who endowed the University of Minnesota with funds to permanently establish a multidisciplinary research center in the United States devoted to the historical and contemporary experience of Austria and Central Europe.

The Center will offer four $100 prizes for the top four entries in the Junior or Senior Divisions addressing one of the categories in the theme of revolution, reaction, and reform in Austria and Central Europe. For further information contact Linda Andrean: Prizes will be awarded on the basis of:

  1. Relevance to Central Europe
  2. Quality and depth of the research
  3. Clarity of the presentation and/or writing
