Harvard University has endorsed the idea of a Tamil Chair in their Department of South Asian Studies. The following note, was part of a letter received from Harvard University:
“We are very pleased to convey to you our desire to support the establishment of the first Sangam Professorship in Tamil Studies at Harvard University. We are thrilled to work with the Tamil community towards this shared goal. This effort will require a total commitment of $6 million”.
The above note reflects Harvard University’s commitment to the Tamil Chair, while needing the Tamil community to raise the funds needed for that endowment.
We are a 501 (C) (3) non-profit agency set up to serve Tamil. Our first goal is to endow a Tamil chair at Harvard University.
