On 11th July, 2013, we launched our BASAS Campaign. We announced our intention to establish an endowment fund, and we pledged to use our expertise to ensure BASAS continues to support workshops, language training grants, and other initiatives to sustain the study and research of the countries and people of South Asia.
With an ever increasing membership we are aware that it is not always possible for everyone to join us, we are therefore adding to the association’s website, on an ongoing basis, audio podcasts from our Annul Lectures, and Annual Conferences.
