Take a few moments to hear from four resident scholars as they reflect on their time at SAR and the power of collaboration:

In a world where conversations are becoming more polarized, how do we find common ground to solve the problems of our time? We invite you to join the conversation.

Today you can invest in the value of meaningful dialogue by providing the space and time needed for scholars and artists to come together in productive exchanges. 

Your investment ensures that SAR continues to provide one of the most unique learning environments in the country for anthropologists, social scientists and Native artists.

Your support means fellows in our programs have the time and space to explore challenging topics, discuss critical social issues, and expand their own creativity.

Your generosity makes it possible for our communities to enrich their lives by connecting with scholars, artists, and an extended network of innovative thinkers.
