For 2016-2018, the International Qur’anic Studies Association receives support from the Windsor Foundation.

In 2012, the Henry Luce Foundation awarded $140,000 to the Society of Biblical Literature to support a three-year consultation to explore the formation of an independent network of Qur’anic scholars. A steering committee was formed, and the initiative was named the International Qur’anic Studies Association.

The Henry Luce Foundation, established in 1936 by Henry R. Luce, seeks to bring important ideas to the center of American life, strengthen international understanding, and foster innovation and leadership in academic, policy, religious and art communities.

The Society of Biblical Literature, founded in 1880, is the oldest and largest learned society devoted to the critical investigation of the Bible from a variety of academic disciplines. As an international organization, the Society offers its members opportunities for mutual support, intellectual growth and professional development and is a member of the American Council of Learned Societies.
