The Association of Members of the Institute for Advanced Study (AMIAS) counts all accepted, current, and former IAS scholars-more than 8,000 individuals worldwide-among its membership. With its focus on welcoming new and incoming scholars, providing professional and social enrichment for current scholars and their families, and helping former scholars stay connected to the academic life of IAS, AMIAS works to complement and sustain the Institute's core mission of supporting undirected research of the highest caliber.
