Friends of the GHI

The Friends of the German Historical Institute (FGHI) was founded by a group of American historians in 1991 to support the activities of the German Historical Institute, Washington, DC (GHI). 

FGHI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, whose officers include representatives of the American Historical Association, The Central European History Society, the German Studies Association, and the Society for German-American Studies.

The Friends serve as a link between the North American scholarly community and the GHI. The organization helps fund projects and initiatives that fall beyond the GHI's operating budget. The support provided by the Friends helps make possible many of the GHI's programs for young scholars and graduate students, its public events, and its teaching resource projects.
