“Among the top research institutes in mathematics and physics, the IHES has a special place in the hearts of many scholars, for the unique points of view it has nurtured over the years, and for its unparalleled atmosphere of international exchange. This couldn’t have been
done without the support of IHES’s American friends.


As always, your donations are a vital part of the support structure which enables scholars from around the world to visit the IHES, exchange their ideas and pursue research in an environment free from distractions. Every contribution, regardless of the amount, helps the IHES to maintain a firm financial footing. Your participation is as valuable as the gift itself and will help to ensure that a new generation of scholars will share the same opportunity.”
