CISAC Donors Help Build a Safer World

The path-breaking work done by CISAC scholars and students is made possible through the generosity of its supporters. Each gift to CISAC underwrites the vital work that CISAC is doing now, and provides a crucial foundation for CISAC programs of the future.

Individual Support

Unrestricted Gifts

Many individuals provide unrestricted gifts to the Center, to ensure that CISAC's current work thrives and to enable the Directors to respond quickly and appropriately to compelling needs in international security studies. These CISAC donors are active members of the CISAC community; they participate in private, substantive conversations with international thought leaders; receive Center publications; and attend select seminars, workshops, and symposia.

Targeted Gifts

Some donors prefer to support specific CISAC initiatives based on their personal interests and philanthropic goals. Among CISAC's targeted support opportunities are fellowships and policy outreach.

Fellowships: CISAC sponsors predoctoral and postdoctoral social science and science fellows who have demonstrated exceptional potential in the field of international security studies and practice. The list of distinguished CISAC scholars includes Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies Director Coit Blacker and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Policy Outreach: CISAC is committed to making the rigorous science and social science research produced at the Center available to national and international policymakers as well as the general public. Currently, the Center's outreach programs include providing Congressional testimony, delivering briefings to U.S. and international agencies, sponsoring public conversations on critical international security issues, and spearheading track-two diplomatic efforts.
