Today we are proud to announce that the William A. Douglass Center for Basque Studies and the Jon Bilbao Basque Library have been awarded the Euskararen Nazioarteko Eguna Saria (Euskara International Day Award) by Eusko Ikaskuntza-Basque Studies Society.

In its remarks, the jury stressed our hard work and accomplishments during the last 50 years to raise awareness of the Basque language and culture in North American academia.

The staff of the Center and the Basque Library would like to extend our gratitude to Eusko Ikaskuntza. This award will motivate us to continue our work for another 50 years and beyond.
