The Association of Hungarian American Academicians (AHAA-AMAT) and the Amerikai Magyar Akadémikusok Alapítványa (AMAAL) are not-for-profit corporations, organized for charitable, scientific, and educational purposes. Their goal is to promote interactions among Hungarian scientists working in or visiting the U.S. through various Hungarian scientific organizations, including the New York Hungarian Scientific Society, the U.S. West Coast Club of Hungarian Scientists, the Hungarian Medical Associations of America and the D.C. Hungarian Club.

The Association organizes annual meetings, including popular scientific lectures to inform its members and the public about scientific fields represented by its members who are external members of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS).

AHAA/AMAT has established a travel fellowship fund for young Hungarian students and researchers pursuing education in science as well as to attend the annual meetings of the association or meetings of the HAS.
