2018 South Asian Studies Fellowships

The South Asia Program welcomes applications from scholars, writers, curators, and artists based in South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, or Sri Lanka) to visit Cornell University for a fellowship period of between one and three months to undertake research, artistic productions, and/or collaborations related to South Asian Studies. Fellows will have the opportunity to collaborate with Cornell faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students, and to involve themselves in South Asia Program activities.

The South Asia Program will award four fellowships for residence at Cornell University between March and December 2018. Each Fellow will receive $6,000 and the necessary documents for J-1 visa application purposes. All travel, housing, health insurance, and visa fees are the responsibility of the Fellow. SAP can assist with securing housing on campus, subject to availability.

The application deadline is December 4, 2017.
