The American Institute of Indian Studies announces its 2019 fellowship competition and invites applications from scholars who wish to conduct their research in India. Senior fellowships are awarded to scholars who hold the Ph.D. degree for up to nine months of research in India. The AIIS also welcomes applications for its performing and creative arts fellowships from accomplished practitioners of the arts of India.
Applications from scholars who are part of a collaborative project involving other scholars are welcome, though AIIS fellowships are granted to individuals, not to teams. Amounts awarded to successful applicants who are members of group projects will be equivalent to fellowships awarded to scholars who submitted applications for individual projects.
