The faculty members associated with the new South Asian Studies Program (SASP) hope to create exciting educational, social, and cultural opportunities for Rutgers undergraduates. We have already put into place a new undergraduate minor in South Asian Studies, and we continue to encourage students to avail themselves of the Study Abroad Program in India.
Undergraduates should also be aware that each spring SASP runs a Research/Travel Awards competition. This is an excellent opportunity to apply for funding for independent research, especially research that will lead to an honors thesis.
Keep us informed of any ideas you have for strengthening SASP. We look forward to working together with all of you!
