General Operating Budget of the ISC
The ISC is undergoing a phase of restructuring, innovation, strengthening and expansion. To do this, there is obviously a need of financial resources. These days it has become increasingly difficult to obtain such support from universities, foundations and governments. There are many reasons explaining this. The ISC urgently needs funds to operate and carry out its day-to-day activities that will allow and facilitate its renaissance. You are asked to support the General Operating Budget of the ISC so that it has the minimum financial capabilities to operate effectively. While most of the work may continue to be done by generous colleagues and student volunteers, there are activities entailing costs that must be met with financial resources. This work can be continued and expanded only with your generous contributions! Donate today! Thank you!
The ISC must support the study of criminology worldwide and also student activities to establish criminology as a field of study and research. There are areas of the world where students are quite active and committed this way. This is especially true of countries in some areas of the world where crime and insecurity are rampant. However, often they lack even minimal resources. Also meritorious students may need some financial help for specific student activities supporting criminology as an area of study. Examples are establishing a criminology students’ association or a “Criminology Day” at their university or nationally, etc. These donated funds will be used to support such activities and initiatives, especially in developing and least developed countries.

National and international opportunities for learning, sharing, establishing networks and collaborations are abundant these days. However, the cost of traveling to these meetings is often high and the support provided by universities or other institutions low and insufficient. In many countries, universities also limit their support to “approved” meetings and conferences, thus making it hard for alternative, innovative, or new fields of interest, research and teaching to develop and become established. Highly motivated and committed younger faculty and students often cannot find financial support to travel to meetings and conferences that will strengthen their commitment to criminology, begin or expand international collaborations, and also help them obtain recognition and support. This fund is meant to remedy this situation to the extent possible in especially meritorious and promising cases. It will also be used to support and balance participation to international courses and institutes organized or sponsored by the ISC. Please, donate today!
