The Center for Portuguese Studies welcomes donations from private individuals, alumni, and Institutions. The CPS is an important vehicle of communication between the American and the Portuguese speaking worlds. It fosters and encourages a fruitful mutual understanding between these two large worlds. The Center is also fundamental for the continuity of these links and mutual interest. It helps to promote groundbreaking research and supports Graduate studies, as well as a journal dedicated to studies in literature, cultures and interdisciplinarity between the Humanities and other fields.
