Carolyn Hauer International Fund
The Carolyn Hauer International Fund was n named in honor of the late Carolyn Hauer who has been described as knowing something about every country in the world. Carolyn loved helping persons transport their curiosity, minds and souls to these locations, especially those seen as “falling off the map.” To her, the world owes much to Paris, but also a great deal to Samarkand, Lima, Reykjavik and Ulan Bator. Each tucked-away corner of the Earth intrigued Carolyn, and she hoped a tableaux of each could be maintained, firmly believing every town, province, parish and region contributes a vital strand to the complex design of the world’s historical tapestry.
This fund was established in 2004 to: Award non-profit institutional AMIA memberships and to provide travel grants to the Annual Conference from emerging nations. Since its establishment, the fund has included travel grants to attendees from Senegal, Botswana, Egypt, Zimbabwe, Jamaica, and Ghana.
