Would you like to give a gift to AAS?
The Asian American Studies Department (AAS) at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, is primarily funded by public funds provided by the State of Illinois and tuition revenue. AAS relies on alumni, friends, and supporters to maintain its strong and expansive educational mission to work toward future growth. AAS is committed to expanding the traditions of knowledge within academia to address Asian American epistemologies, activities, and experiences. The Department also seeks to render scholarly intellectual efforts integral to those of local, regional, national, and international Asian American communities. Faculty, staff, and students associated with AAS are expected to contribute to this mission not only through teachings, research, and service activities, locally and nationally, but also through active participation in social, intellectual, and advocacy endeavors. Financial contributions to AAS support our efforts to fulfill our mission and to complete projects that would otherwise be beyond the means of a public university budget. Two funds in particular help support student work. These are:
The Jeffrey S. Tanaka Award, an award supporting graduate student research in AAS; and,
The Clark Cunningham Undergraduate Essay Award, an award recognizing undergraduate research in AAS
We welcome your support and consider any and every contribution an act of generosity helping us to build an enriching environment for students on the UIUC campus. In addition to supporting AAS, each contribution is also counted as a donation to the University of Illinois. Your company may have a matching gift program that could double or even triple the amount of your contribution.
