The South Asian Studies Program (SASP) at Rutgers University works with faculty members, graduate students, members of the community, private institutions, and non-profit organizations to strengthen the study of the region and inspire new generations of South Asia scholars. In pursuit of these goals, SASP actively supports the teaching of faculty and graduate students, initiates and administers research projects, organizes and hosts lectures and conferences, develops financial resources, encourages interdisciplinary and comparative studies, and assists in the organization of cultural and community activities. SASP aims to support a wide variety of research in the social sciences, the humanities, engineering, and relevant professional fields.
To support these efforts, SASP seeks opportunities to collaborate with corporate, non-profit and community sponsors to expand our program, host sponsored lectures, or explore new avenues of research, teaching and outreach. The initiatives below highlight some of these efforts. Please contact the Director of SASP if you are interested in supporting these initiatives, or make a secure online donation to our development fund.
