Research/Travel Awards

The South Asian Studies Program annually furnishes small grants to graduate students pursuing field or archival research on South Asia or the South Asian diaspora. These awards are made on a competitive basis and help offset the cost of such things as archival fees, travel expenses to South Asia or sites of South Asian diasporic life, conference fees, or summer language study. See application instructions for complete details. The annual deadline for receiving application materials is the second Tuesday of March by 4PM.
