CSE Bernard A. Galler Fellowship Fund (571676)

This fund supports graduate students in Computer Science and Engineering.

About the Fund

Mrs. Enid Galler and the Galler Family established the Bernard A. Galler Fellowship Fund to honor the memory of Prof. Bernard Galler. Prof. Galler (1928-2006) was a pioneer in the field of computer science and helped to shape the discipline at the University of Michigan. In the 1950s and early 1960s, Prof. Galler was active in the development of the new Communication Sciences Program, and in 1966 he became associate director of the Computing Center. He became a charter member of the Department of Computer and Communication Sciences (CCS) in 1966 and was influential in the development of the software and mathematics curricula for computer science. He served as CCS chair from 1973-75.

Professor Galler served as an officer of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) from its earliest days, including the presidency from 1968-70. He was a natural historian, and ensured that the history of computer science was recorded and remembered by founding the IEEE Annals of the History of Computing in 1979. Prof. Galler retired from the University in 1994.

Create Your Own Opportunity for Impact

Name Your Own CSE Professorship

Our faculty are the backbone of the department. They are teachers, mentors, researchers, entrepreneurs, and managers. They bring the latest technology to the classroom, they raise funds to conduct their research, they invite undergraduate students into their research groups to help them experience the thrill of cutting-edge research, and with their graduate students are boldly leading in technological and scientific territory.

Contact us to for a discussion about the establishment of a professorship in the name of your choice.

Name Your Own Endowed Fund

Establish your own endowed fund and name the recipient. Recent examples are the Bernard A. Galler Fellowship Fund, the George I. and Mary N. Haddad Fellowship Fund, and the Arjun Chandran Memorial Fund. All of these funds support graduate student research, which is a key component to the strength of CSE.
