CERGE-EI Foundation

The focus of the CERGE-EI Foundation is to develop support in the United States and Canada for modern economics and other social science education in the transition and emerging economies. It does so by providing research grants, teaching fellowships and scholarship support, as well as supporting graduate education programs at CERGE-EI and similar institutions.

The CERGE-EI Foundation is a legally registered US IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and its IRS 990 is available at www.guidestar.org. The Foundation's most recent IRS 990 is available here and the audited financial statements can be viewed here.
