If you would like to discuss making a gift, please email us.
You could also choose to restrict your gift so that it goes to a particular aspect of our work, for example:
IASA began making awards to support research in the Arabian peninsula from 2013 following a generous donation from the IASA Patron, Valeria Piacentini. We have since continued to make awards by drawing down on reserves, but this is not sustainable in the long term. We have thus set up the IASA Grants Fund with the aim of attracting donations to enable us to continue supporting research in the long term.
These grants make a real difference in sustaining current research and supporting a new generation of researchers. We attach great importance to disseminating the outcomes of research in the form of publications, contributions to conferences and inspiring exhibitions. Recipients of awards are required to make full reports to the IASA and agree to give lectures organised by the IASA as well as writing shorter reports in our bi-annual bulletin to make outcomes known as widely as possible.
Support for graduate students
We would also like to help promising young academics or graduate students from the Arabian Peninsula to attend the Seminar for Arabian Studies by the award of a grant for travel and stipend.
If you would like to discuss making a restricted gift, please email us.
Become a sponsor
