Consider making a donation to the African Studies Program of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, one of the world’s most important centers for the study of Africa.

Give today.

The African Studies Program Gift Fund has been established to support research, training, outreach, and student scholarships in the general cross-disciplinary field of African studies.

Our faculty – we now number 70 members in 30 different departments – has, over the years, produced path-breaking research on African history, politics, legal systems, land resources, arts, culture, and languages. While maintaining these strengths, we have moved in the 21st century toward supporting research and training in business, law, the sciences, public health, and medicine in Africa.

Africa courses on the Madison campus reach 4,000 undergraduates annually. About 120 Africanist graduate students are training at Wisconsin in a multitude of disciplines to provide coming generations the Africa expertise that our nation and the world require.

We will be glad to discuss your wishes or special intentions as a donor.

By default, your contribution will support:

  • Research in Africa by Wisconsin faculty members and graduate students
  • Special learning opportunities for undergraduate students in Africa such as overseas modules immediately following Africa courses in Madison
  • Scholarships that will make it possible for us to provide more graduate students from African countries with Wisconsin training
