comes to the Institute for South Asia Studies
on November 19, 2015
Philanthropist and Chairperson of Infosys Foundation, Sudha Murty, recently on campus as our fourth Sarah Kailath Lecturer (view lecture here), asks you to GIVE BIG to South Asia@Berkeley!
Joining her in this appeal are founders of the Sarah Kailath Chair of India Studies and ardent supporters of our South Asia program at Berkeley, Professor Tom Kailath and Dr. Anuradha Luther, as well as the current Sarah Kailath Chair holder, Professor Lawrence Cohen.
This year, the annual campus program called
The Big Give, a one-day extravaganza in which supporters of Berkeley vote with donations to support the programs they care about most, comes on Nov 19. By supporting us, you strengthen our ability to provide high quality events, programs, and research. Your contribution can help to:
- Fund student summer research projects in South Asia
- Provide scholarships to students from South Asia to attend graduate programs at UC Berkeley
- Support visiting scholars from South Asia
- Host performances and speakers of interest to the wider Bay Area community
- Develop web based South Asian language materials for instruction
- And much more!
On this special day The Big Give
is a chance to support these initiatives along with thousands of other friends, alumni, and parents of Cal.
In other news, please make a note of our upcoming events in November and save the dates on your calendars.
