A limited number of travel-research fellowships are now available to
Indiana University Bloomington graduate students through the Dhar
India Studies Program. These grants are intended to support travel to
the Indian subcontinent for the purposes of preliminary or dissertationstage
research. Funds may also be used in support of travel to sites
other than the subcontinent, pending sufficient justification.
Qualified students will be enrolled toward a PhD and pursuing research
that focuses substantially on the Indian subcontinent (broadly
understood). The competition is open to students working in both the
Humanities and Social Sciences, though preference will be given to
those who have previously pursued coursework in the Dhar India
Studies Program and have either completed qualifying examinations, or
expect to take them within the next year. A progress report on research
conducted under the auspices of the grant will be required at the
conclusion of the research period.
To apply, students should submit a CV (with email address), unofficial
transcript, a statement of research program (of no more than three
pages), and a budget of expenses no later than Friday, March 01, 2019 at
4pm to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each applicant should arrange to have two confidential letters of
support (at least one of which must be from a member of the IUBloomington
faculty) sent to the same address by the relevant deadline.
All materials must be submitted electronically. Successful applicants
will be notified by Friday, March 22, 2019.
