The Latin American and Iberian Studies (LAIS) Program is the oldest interdisciplinary program on campus. Drawing on a multitude of disciplines and perspectives from across our UC Santa Barbara, LAIS faculty and students examine the people and cultures of Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries and territories around the world — from Europe and Latin America to Africa and East Asia — as well as Chicanx, Latinx, and Puerto Rican communities in the US.

Your gift to the LAIS Program will help provide fellowships, awards, and funding to our talented graduate students, and to ensure high standards of excellence in our academic events and programming.

Please, give to the LAIS program today via this link


You may also make a gift by phone or mail. Please make your check payable to "UC Regents." On the memo section of the check, or in an enclosed letter (or email), indicate that the gift is for "The Latin American and Iberian Studies Program at UC Santa Barbara."
