Anna Maglione-Sie Endowment

The Anna Maglione-Sie Endowment in Italian Culture at the University of Denver was created in 2008 through a major gift from the Anna and John J. Sie Foundation. The mission of the endowment is to promote Italian culture and the distinction of the Italian program at DU.

Initiatives of the endowment include: visiting scholars and symposia in the field of Italian studies, Italian faculty research and travel grants, and the opportunities listed below.


The endowment supports research travel grants for Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences faculty. Recipients are chosen based on the following factors:

  • Relevance for Italian studies or Italy
  • Clarity of the project's goals
  • Project's impact in its field

Applications are typically accepted annually in March.
