India Initiative Student Fellowship
Graduate funding can be used for three purposes: research, internships, and language training. Proposals for either exploratory or advanced dissertation research will be considered. The first will cover the early years of graduate program; the second will facilitate completion of the dissertation. Internships will be with projects underway at partner institutions, some of these could include Janaagraha (Bangalore), Centre for Public Policy Research (Delhi), Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (Delhi), Center for Studies in Social Sciences, (Kolkata), National Council of Applied Economic Research (Delhi), Centre for Policy Indian Institute of Management (Bangalore). Language training will be for accelerated programs of language instruction. (American Institute of Indian Studies (Delhi) can assist in locating a center for specific language training.)
Other creative ideas are also welcome.
