Byrne Endowed Scholarship Fund

History in the Making

A few years ago, the Department of History initiated a campaign to establish the Frank L. Byrne Graduate Research Award to commemorate this outstanding scholar.  Dr. Byrne served on the history faculty for twenty-nine years before retiring in 1995.  It is the Department's intent to endow this annual award through the generosity of the colleagues, friends, and students of Professor Byrne and to present it to a deserving Ph.D. student for the purpose of funding dissertation research.  We encourage all of those whose lives or careers were touched by Frank Byrne to support the Byrne Research Award with a financial contribution.  With your generous gift, the Department of History is confident of reaching its goal of $25,000 to fund this endowment.  Please know that the Department appreciates your consideration of and help with this initiative.
