Celebrating more than three decades of publication, Boston Review continues to fine-tune itself as a nexus for people seeking cutting-edge ideas in a forum that encourages dialogue about politics and culture. Recently, the magazine has found ways to boost its visibility and impact.

Carnegie Corporation funding of Boston Review began in 2003 with two Dissemination Program awards totaling $100,000 and continued in 2006 with an additional $75,000 for highlighting and disseminating the work of Carnegie Scholars and $7,100 for communications capacity building. In 2007, a grant of $40,000 was awarded for a conference on challenges in Iraq held in collaboration with the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation.
