Giving Tuesday 2022

Dear friends and supporters of HSA,

The proverb says: “Anpil men chay pa lou” [With many hands the load is lighter]. As an academic organization, HSA continues to provide ongoing programs to help us remain connected to scholarship in Haiti and stay aware of current events. We also offer important information to our membership, Haitian scholars and others interested in Haiti. November 29, 2022 is Giving Tuesday. We ask you to consider donating to HSA in whatever capacity you canBay piti pa di chich. [Anything you give is appreciated].

Mèsi anpil! Thank you!

Below are five ways in which you can donate to the association:

Gift to HSA

A gift to HSA helps support the day to day operations of the office, supplement funding for scholarships and events promoting Haitian Scholarship.

Founders Circle

The Founders Circle was created in 2009. By contributing you help support the tireless efforts of the secretariat to ensure the smooth daily operations of the association. By contributing to the Founders Circle you receive acknowledgment on our website, newsletter and conference materials.

Support the HSA Haiti Committee

This fund will be to support the work of the Haiti-based HSA committee.

Emerging Scholars Fund

HSA established the Student and Emerging Scholars’ fund during the 2006 conference. Since 2008 the HSA board has earmarked $1000 annually to support student research and participation in our annual conference. Two scholarships ($500 each) may be applied toward travel and accommodation expenses incurred for attending an HSA conference and/or presenting a specific research project concerning Haiti and/or the Haitian diaspora.

Michel Rolph Trouillot Scholarship

The Michel-Rolph Trouillot Fund was started in 2012 to expand participation in HSA among Haiti-based academic and public scholars, artists, and professionals who might not be able to attend the conference without financial assistance.
