YOU MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Since its establishment by Georgia Southern University, the Center for Irish Research and Teaching (CIRT) has received an annual E&G (educational and general) budget allocation of ZERO from the institution. Although highly productive, generating a plethora of outcomes, the Center remains a non-funded mandate that relies on financial donations and grant-procurement to do its work on behalf of students and stakeholders. Most monetary gifts to CIRT are tax-deductible, so please consider supporting the Center's mission, vision, and enterprise.
