Please consider donating a gift to the Julian Samora Research Institute
Through your support you can enhance JSRI’s research, symposia, and cultural and scholarship activities.
Each gift enhances JSRI’s capacity to promote research on Latino communities in Michigan, the Midwest and across the nation and to disseminate and contribute to the application of the findings.
Your gift can be designated for:
- The Julian Samora Endowed Scholarship Fund, which supports two awards annually to undergraduate and graduate students with research and teaching interests on Latino issues;
- The Julian Samora Research Institute Enrichment Fund, which supports research projects, student research assistantships,and public forums on critical Latino issues;
- The Julian Samora Research Institute Scholarship Fund, which supports students with short-term financial needs;
- The P. Lea Martinez Endowed Scholarship Fund, which supports students studying health issues among Latinos;
- Or any combination thereof.
The Julian Samora Endowed Scholarship Fund was initially funded with a contribution from Dr. Julian Samora, and the funds have supported many students over the years. Additional funding would permit increased scholarships and financial support to students while simultaneously honoring one of the nation’s most reputable Latino scholars...Dr. Julian Samora.
We welcome gifts of all sizes and - unless anonymity is requested - MSU and JSRI will acknowledge your gifts accordingly. Contribution options include gifts of cash, securities, stocks or bonds, tangible personal property, and gifts through planned and deferred gift bequests. All of your gifts are considered charitable deductions. Through specialists at University Development, we can help define and initiate your charitable intentions in the most efficient manner for you, your heirs, and JSRI.
