Make a Donation to AISLS
Most AISLS income comes from grants from US government agencies and private foundations. These funds enable us to run our major programs, including fellowships and dissertation planning grants for US citizens.
Funds raised from donations, while relatively modest, are especially important to AISLS because they allow us to support activities that fall outside the interests of our major donors. Donations are also important as expressions of support at a time when US government funds for international education are being reduced.
We offer donors two choices. They can designate their contribution to support grants for non-US citizen graduate students. At the moment, these funds are being spent on conference travel grants, but if sufficient funds are raised we will also open our dissertation planning grant program to non-US citizens enrolled at US universities. Alternatively, donors can make an unrestricted contribution. These gifts provide AISLS with the means to maintain other programs not supported through our major grants.
