Your contributions will enable us to continue to support young people in their efforts to learn about rice.  Our only funding comes from gifts from people like you who are interested in rice.  Small grants to young scholars often lead them to a life-long interest in rice or rice-growing areas. Contributions may be designated to the General Fund or the Memorial Fund

ARFUSA Memorial 
The ARFUSA Memorial has been established to honor the memories of friends and loved ones who contributed so much to advancing knowledge about rice and helping others achieve better lives. Donations may be made to honor the memory of any person who had a connection to the rice world through the International Rice Research Institute. One-half of Memorial funds are used for annual awards and half are kept to generate earnings for future ARFUSA programs. 

Memorial donations have been made to honor:


How your money helps: One scholar had the following comment about her experience: "I have a tremendous urge to return to Asia and continue my studies in rice. I think I will forever have a heart for it and I hope an opportunity arises that I can go back to it. If you ever hear of potential opportunities through the ARF I would certainly be interested. Due to my current position I’m becoming particularly interested in rice seed pathology and impact on global economies."

Your support, in any amount will help make it possible to continue these awards.

ARFUSA is recognized by the US Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit charitable organization so you can deduct your gift to ARFUSA just like you deduct gifts to your other favorite charities.
