The Institute of East Asian Studies will be participating in the UC Berkeley BIG GIVE campaign on March 9 to raise funds for student travel awards and fellowships.

The impact of past Big Gives has enabled award recipients to extend their research opportunities in significant ways.  In this past year with the challenges brought about because of the pandemic, support for our students has been especially meaningful. Here are a few bright spots our students shared that were made possible with the generous contributions of our donors.

Please help us continue to support the educational journeys of our students during BIG GIVE.

Your donations make a difference.
