About the Summer in South Asia Fellowship
Thanks to a generous donation to the University of Michigan Center for South Asian Studies, undergraduate students have the opportunity to do an internship and conduct independent research on a topic of their choice in India over the summer months. The center encourages students to work with existing institutions, agencies or organizations, but working independently on research is also acceptable. This fellowship has sent 65 University of Michigan undergraduates to India since its inception in 2006. Please visit the Center for South Asian Studies website to learn more about the program and alumni.
Are you interested in becoming a Summer in South Asia Fellow?
This fellowship is intended for non-graduating University of Michigan students who have not spent significant amounts of time in India. The program is designed to be flexible: you tell us what you want to study, design a program to accomplish your goals, and we will fund the best proposals. Summer in South Asia fellows receive a $3,000 stipend which covers all or most of the costs associated with travel to and time spent in India. Learn more about the application process.
