2005 Bzdak Travel Award for Study in Milan

This annual award is established by Drs. Michael J. and Meredith Arms Bzdak to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students for the study and/or research of Art History in Milan, Italy. The purpose of the travel award is to acquaint students with both the rich early Christian and Renaissance art and architecture of Milan as well as the city as a contemporary capital of design, style and fashion.

CRITERIA: The Bzdak Travel Award for Study in Milan shall be awarded to a full-time undergraduate junior or senior majoring in Art History at Rutgers-New Brunswick who is planning to travel to Milan, Italy. Examples of qualified students include undergraduates who will be undertaking a senior-year Art History honors thesis that focuses on Italian art, contemporary design, or architecture and wish to travel to Milan to undertake research; students who are planning to pursue a M.A. or Ph.D. in Art History and wish to informally study in Milan to further their knowledge of Italian art; and/or students who are participating in a study abroad program that does not go to Milan and want to use Bzdak Travel Award monies to travel to this city. The a) award amount is $3,000 and b) monies may not be used to offset expenses associated with a formal study abroad program in Milan.
