Donations play a crucial role in supporting the mission of ATDS, including conferences, publications, grants and awards for students and scholars. Whether making a one-time donation or setting up a monthly contribution, you can indicate which fund you’d like to support: General Operating, Publications, Awards and our new Contingent Faculty Research and Travel Award.

This year, we have launched a new award, designed to support contingent faculty members.  The ongoing challenges of the academic job market mean that a number of our colleagues labor in positions that don’t allow them access to regular university funding for research or conference travel.  As an organization we are demonstrating our financial commitment to helping contingent faculty members to stay in the scholarly conversation.

As you go through the donation screens, you can choose which fund you want to support by writing it in the blank space on the second screen.
