About the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation of the United States (ACCFUS)

The Arthur C. Clarke Foundation was established in 1983 as part of the
observation of the ITU sponsored world communications year. It is a
not-for-profit 501(c)3 educational foundation dedicated to the study and
recognition of education and developments in space communications and
information and to promote the extraordinary contributions of Arthur C.
Clarke--the first individual to conceive of geosynchrnous satellite
communications. The Foundation was announced at the White House as a new
initiative to use communications, and especially satellite communications, to
improve world conditions. It activities include:

* Educational seminars and forums related to issues of communication
development, future directions in networking and programming, new
communications systems, etc.
* Fellowships and Scholarships to allow students to study satellite
applications and related topics
* Training programs to allow young people to learn how to design and build
communications systems
* Awards for innovations in the field of satellite communications that
advance the science or the application of this technology as well as
major lifetime achievement awards for fundamental advanced to the field.

New activities under study include:

* Establishment of the Clarke Institute to carry out research, training,
education and international colloquia in the field. This would be the
world's first center devoted to the interdisciplinary study of
communications, networking and the future. Its work would be carried
out globally and would be conducted on a virtual basis with many
interconnected centers around the world including especially the Arthur
C. Clarke Foundation of the United Kingdom and the Arthur C. Clarke
Institute for Modern Technologies of Sri Lanka..

Arthur C. Clarke was one of the founders of the British Inter Planetary
Society, the first to propose the practical use of the Geosynchronous Orbit
for communications and broadcasting. His writings include some 100 books in
science and science fiction including 2001: a Space Odyssey, Rendezvous with
Rama, and Childhood's End. He serves as the Chancellor of the International
Space University of Strasbourg, France and recently retired as Vice Chancellor
of the University of Moratuwa in Sri Lanka where the Arthur C. Clarke
Institute for Modern Technologies resides.
