Donation Appeal from ANHS President

Dear ANHS Members,

In this season of good will, I wish to thank you for everything you do to keep our vibrant association active and growing. In the past few years alone, together we’ve hosted three conferences, provided grants and fellowships to junior and senior scholars from the US, Europe, and Nepal, produced a high-quality, peer-reviewed journal, maintained our inviting website, and assisted with research needs in Nepal and the Himalayan region. New partners here and abroad have sought us out for various collaborative projects. For all this, we operate primarily on members’ annual dues and occasional small grants and donations, for which we are grateful. All who contribute to the association’s mission volunteer their time gladly.
