Support for the Center for African Studies would provide core funding to strengthen the Center, enhance interaction among faculty and students at Stanford, and facilitate collaboration with other University programs.

Funds would be focused on important needs that must be filled, on activities that promise to affect the broadest range of faculty and students and on activities that offer high leverage by encouraging communication and collaboration. Such activities include visiting scholars; research networks linking internal and external faculty and students; seminars, symposia and conferences; curriculum development; language training; research initiatives on key topics and support for the students who represent the next generation of scholars and policy-makers.

If you are considering making a gift to the Center, we encourage you to consult with us. We can assist you in defining its purposes and can introduce you to officers of the School of Humanities and Sciences for advice on terms and conditions. Please contact our faculty director, Joel Cabrita.
