LASA is celebrating fifty years of continuous progress, growth, and achievement. As part of a broader fundraising effort around the 50th Anniversary, we continue to work with our “50 for 50” campaign that provides an opportunity to build the LASA endowment that supports funding for travel and research grants, the great majority earmarked for scholars from Latin America.
Your generosity can make this campaign a success and assure LASA's ability to continue supporting the travel and research grants program. So please, give LASA a birthday present— $50 for 50 years and join our Leadership Circle.
The LASA endowment has been absolutely crucial for assuring that scholars in Latin America are well represented at our Congresses. It is currently providing support to approximately 250 scholars and students. If at least 50% of the current individual LASA membership contributes $50 ($1 dollar per year of LASA’s existence), we would be able to provide approximately 30 additional travel grants for Latin American scholars and students per year in perpetuity. If all current individual members of LASA contribute $50, we would be able to provide 60 additional travel grants per year.
We are very grateful to the many donors who have contributed to LASA over its first 50 years and we encourage your participation in this special campaign around the Fiftieth Anniversary!
Thank you for your continuing support.
