Dr. Marek Jan Chodakiewicz is the current holder of the Kościuszko Chair of Polish Studies, which was formally inaugurated at The Institute of World Politics on November 7, 2008.

The Chair has been partially endowed through the generosity of The American Institute of Polish Culture, but your help is needed to ensure that IWP can reach the full potential of the Kosciuszko Chair.

A Matching Grant

The Kościuszko Chair was awarded to IWP in 2008 as a $1,000,000 challenge grant. As part of the agreement, the Institute pledged to match AIPC’s original gift within three years of the signing. Ever since, the Institute was chosen as the Chair’s new home, we at IWP have been astonished by the expressions of support and excitement both from within the Polish-American community and without. There is much to do, but there are many ready to help, and we look forward to turning the Kościuszko Chair into a lasting pillar both of IWP and the academic community as a whole.

The Institute of World Politics is a 501 c (3) higher educational institution under IRS regulations. As such, any gift to the Kościuszko Chair matching grant campaign is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. All Kościuszko Chair funds will be kept separate and restricted until the $1 million goal has been reached at which time they will be combined with the initial AIPC grant to form the new chair. Gifts should be made out to The Institute of World Politics with Kościuszko Chair specified in the “for” section. We urge you to join us in this effort to create a lasting institution for the promotion of academic excellence and the advancement of Polish-American relations.
