President's Welcome

It gives me immense pleasure to serve as the President of the American Institute of Bangladesh Studies (AIBS). I firmly believe that communication provides connectivity and connectivity results in productivity. I welcome you to our web site, which provides detailed information about our current offerings and insights on future plans and initiatives.  

AIBS is an association of institutions of higher learning in the United States aimed at promoting scholarly understanding between Bangladesh and the United States.  Incorporated in 1988, AIBS provides senior and junior fellowships as well as pre-dissertation grants for U.S. scholars and students to visit Bangladesh and observe first-hand the problems facing a developing country. Other programs include research and development seminars and workshops through our Dhaka Center to address the educational and development issues in Bangladesh. A final program permits Bangladeshi scholars to visit the United States for joint research projects with U.S. scholars.  Since its inception, affiliated scholars have investigated a wide range of research topics in fields including but not limited to demography, politics, sustainable development, bureaucracy, anthropology, archeology, history, refugee issues, gender and minority studies, religion, rural and urban migration as well as banking and good governance.
