Annual Campaign

Letter from NBR President Roy Kamphausen

Our work at this moment in time—to make sense of the concentrating power, risk, and opportunity in Asia for decision-makers—has never been more essential. We deeply appreciate your support and urge you to make a year-end gift.

Support NBR today

NBR’s innovative research makes a difference in so many areas that are of pressing concern for policymakers in Congress and the Administration—the theft of intellectual property, China’s vision for a new global order and strategy for Africa, opportunities and concerns posed by the rise of digital trade, and the challenges of achieving both energy security and environmental sustainability. Our 20th anniversary volume of Strategic Asia assesses the impact of U.S.-China competition, pushback against globalization, and the Covid-19 pandemic on the Indo-Pacific region.

Your support for cutting-edge research has a tangible policy impact!

NBR’s commitment to train the next generation of Asia specialists has resulted in two new programs this year—the Ellings-Korduba Research Fellowship and the NBR Undergraduate Diversity Fellowship.

Your support for training the next generation will pay dividends for a lifetime!

Please contribute to NBR during this giving season. Your generosity is essential because the stakes for our country and the world in getting Asia policy right have never been greater.

With gratitude,

Roy Kamphausen
President, The National Bureau of Asian Research
