Established in 1995, the nonprofit Advanced Studies in Culture Foundation has a single purpose: to serve the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia by supporting, promoting, translating, and applying the Institute’s research.
The Institute’s work is often esoteric, yet believing its research is applicable in constructive ways to leaders and practitioners, the Foundation is especially committed to making the Institute’s research accessible and available through a variety of media to those who most need it.
Note: From time to time, the Foundation collaborates with institutions of higher learning. Such collaborations may involve the Foundation’s use of research scholars from these institutions. As a matter of policy, when research scholars from other institutions are funded by the Foundation, the Foundation will, when necessary, reimburse the institution for its direct costs. The Foundation does not provide reimbursement for the indirect costs associated with such research scholars.
