Support European and Russian Studies at UCLA

Founded in 1957, the Center for European and Russian Studies has a long record of excellence in advancing innovative teaching, research, and public education. Our programs support the development of new generations of experts, foster international scholarly exchange and collaboration, and generate new insights into the complex issues that confront Europe and Russia and, in turn, impact transatlantic and global relationships.

Your contribution will help further our mission of advancing knowledge about Europe and Russia by expanding our ability to fund:

• research and language study fellowships for graduate students
• post-doctoral awards and visiting professorships
• faculty research projects on particular countries or regions
• conferences, public lectures, book discussions, and film series
• new interdisciplinary area studies courses

Options for support include outright gifts, pledges payable over time, and permanent endowments. Gifts of any size are welcome. All gifts are tax-deductible and may provide general support for our programs or be directed to specific projects or activities in areas of greatest interest to you.
