Giving to the Harriman Institute

We have been training leaders in the field of Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies since 1946. As we celebrate our 75th anniversary, we ask you to help us train the next generation of regional specialists by donating to the Institute. Let’s make an impact together.

Harriman’s 75th Anniversary Fund

At a time when governmental and institutional funding has been in decline, the Harriman Institute’s 75th Anniversary Fund has been established to create a sustainable fellowship program that ensures full tuition funding for our growing BA/MA program in regional studies (Russia, Eurasia, and Eastern Europe – MARS-REERS). The BA/MA fellowship is designed to encourage the most exceptional undergraduate students who have a demonstrated interest in Russia and Eurasia to complete a master’s degree in their fifth year without incurring the additional tuition debt or significant financial burdens typically associated with MA education. Fellowship funding is designed to cover full tuition for a fellow’s additional year of graduate study at Harriman necessary to complete the BA/MA degree. At the same time, the fellowships will help make an important early intervention in students’ careers that will yield important downstream effects, including fostering an enduring commitment to the region, developing an awareness of the region’s complexities, and selecting career paths where interdisciplinary and regional knowledge are valued.

Harriman’s growing BA/MA program compliments the Institute’s interdisciplinary MA program in regional studies, which remains at the core of Harriman’s educational mission. The BA/MA track of study provides students with the tools and experience to utilize their regional specializations when they enter the work force whether pursuing careers in diplomacy and international affairs, business and the law, education, journalism, the arts, or opportunities in the nonprofit sector.
