ILARA Receives a Medal from the Singer-Polignac Foundation

This year, the Institute for Linguistic Heritage and Diversity (ILARA) is honoured to receive one of two medals of the Singer-Polignac Foundation.

In 1928, Winnaretta Singer, Princess Edmond de Polignac, solidified her commitment to artistic, literary and scientific patronage by establishing the Singer-Polignac Foundation. In cooperation with Raymond Poincaré and Maurice Paléologue, she laid the groundwork for her philanthropic endeavours. Following the princess’s passing in 1943, the foundation has continued its operations from its mansion near the Trocadéro in Paris. In 2021, the Singer-Polignac Foundation was formally recognised as a public interest entity.

Since 2020, it has been under the chairmanship of Professor Pierre Corvol, a member of the Academy of Sciences, a professor emeritus at the Collège de France and an honorary administrator of the Collège de France.

Each year, the members of the Board of Directors of the Singer-Polignac Foundation honour deserving associations or companies involved in the arts and sciences or leading sociocultural projects.
