The Peter Aberger Endowed Fund for International Travel

In February 2007, the International Studies Program initiated a special endowed fund to support the travel expenses and other expenses directly associated with travel for students participating in travel abroad (international travel) opportunities endorsed by the International Studies Program. This endowment is in honor of Dr. Peter Aberger, a longstanding Rider University foreign languages and literatures associate professor emeritus and student mentor.
