Founded in 1961, The Mongolia Society is a private, non-profit, non-political organization that promotes the study of Mongolia, its history, language, and culture. Its aims are exclusively scholarly, educational, and charitable.
Centered in Ulaanbaatar and also consisting of a research library, this non-profit educational organization that supports the development of Mongolian Studies and academic exchanges with Inner Asia. The center offers offers a variety of fellowships and programs for emerging scholars including a Field Research Fellowship, a Library Fellowship, and Intensive Summer Mongolian Language Program Fellowship.
The Mongolia Initiative at the Institute of East Asian Studies was formally established in 2014 following a generous gift from the government of Mongolia to the university. This gift has supported new programs, including support for language instruction, visiting scholars, library acquisitions, and events and conferences.
The society produces the website MongolianCulture.com, which features a wealth of information and links to additional resources including the Mongolian History Blog.
