AidData began at William & Mary as a student-faculty research project in 2003 and is now a global leader in the provision of reliable, timely, and detailed information about foreign assistance projects. Today AidData is the largest public access database on project-level development in the world, tracking more than $5.5 trillion in development aid and more than one million development projects across the globe.
Private gifts to AidData at William & Mary will support the following initiatives:
- Aid Management Fellowships, which deploy W&M students overseas to train developing world policymakers to use data and technology to more effectively manage aid
- Visiting AidData Research Fellowships, in which W&M hosts students and faculty from Africa, Latin America, and Asia and trains them to apply AidData tools and technologies in their home countries
- The Empowering Communities Project, which will equip the intended beneficiaries of aid with the information needed to hold development agencies accountable for results
- Chinese Aid Transparency Project, which supports a groundbreaking student-faculty initiative to make Chinese aid more transparent
Make a gift to AidData at the Institute for the Theory and Practice of International Relations.
