     * List to be updated

The aforesaid funders/organisations assume no responsibility whatsoever with regard to the results of the researcher's project or management of the data collected. The Neo Zoroastrian Project is conceived independently by the researcher and was subsequently admitted as a doctoral project at SOAS according to the admission policy of the institution. The external funders – Zoroastrian Trusts – are merely supporting a Zoroastrian student and his academic pursuits towards the study of the Zoroastrian religion, history, heritage, and cultures.
