Cornell South Asian Studies Fellowships

lecture

Cornell University’s 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 one-to-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 January and December 2017.  Each Fellow will receive $5,000 and a formal letter of award suitable for visit visa application purposes. All travel, housing, health insurance, and visa arrangements and costs are the responsibility of the Fellow.

Cornell University’s South Asia Program is an interdisciplinary hub for Cornell students, faculty, staff, community members, and academic visitors. It has over 50 affiliated faculty from across Cornell’s colleges and professional schools, in the disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The South Asia Program has been designated by the U.S. Department of Education as a Title VI, South Asia National Resource Center, one of only eight in the United States.
