Help honor former director William Glade by May 31 — and have your gift doubled!

Invest in LLILAS

Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies at The University of Texas at Austin

You’re invited to join former students, friends, and colleagues who are creating an endowment to honor beloved former institute director William Glade. They’ve set a goal of $50,000 and a total of $40,000 has already been raised—your gift can help us complete the fund!

The William Glade Fund will support the education of incoming and current graduate students of the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS). Funds may cover tuition, fees, books, research, and/or internship opportunities. The student who receives these funds will be recognized as the Dr. William Glade Scholar for the year in which the award is made.

To help finish this campaign for $50,000, we’re looking to raise the remaining $10,000 by May 31.

Your gift will help us meet our goal of $50,000, which will be matched 1:1 by Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long, which means your generous gift will have a significant impact on the lives of future LLILAS students.

$10,000 by May 31 = $20,000 toward the fund.

If 100 donors give $100 or more by May 31, we will complete the fund and reach our goal of $50,000!

Make your donation online or contact LLILAS Associate Director of Development Celeste Mendoza at 512-232-2424.
