The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the landscape in which we work is profound, yet our mission of advancing international dialogue, understanding, and respect remains essential. Amidst global trends of widespread xenophobia, intolerance, and misunderstanding, sustaining connectivity across borders is more crucial than ever.
As we continue to adapt our grantmaking to our current realities and future uncertainties, we are proud to announce a list of 2020 grants made to date, including time-sensitive grants approved by our Board of Trustees in May. These range from ongoing support for graduate students from Asia pursuing degrees in the U.S., assisting graduating students to remain in the U.S. post-graduation for practical training, and enabling programs to continue to pursue their objectives by transitioning online.
