Peter R. D'Agostino Research Travel Grant
The Cushwa Center offers Peter R. D’Agostino Research Travel Grants in conjunction with Italian Studies at Notre Dame to facilitate the study of the American past from an international perspective.

These grants are offered in honor of the late Peter R. D’Agostino, a friend and colleague to many, author of the award-winning book Rome in America: Transnational Catholic Ideology from the Risorgimento to Fascism (UNC, 2004), and a tireless promoter of transatlantic research in American Catholic studies.
