2023 American Iinstitute of Indian Studies Fellowship Competition
Website THE AMERICAN IINSTITUTE OF INDIAN STUDIES
For more than 60 years, the American Institute of Indian Studies has provided funding to pre- and post-doctoral scholars and artists in pursuit of knowledge about India.
- Junior Fellowships are for graduate students conducting research for their doctoral dissertations in India.
- Senior Long- and Short-term Fellowships are for those holding the PhD degree.
- Performing and Creative Arts Fellowships are available to accomplished practitioners of the arts to conduct their projects in India.
The AIIS fellowship competition is not restricted to those from its member institutions. Non-U.S. citizens may apply as long as they are either graduate students or full-time faculty at colleges and universities in the United States. Approximately 35 fellowships are awarded each year.
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR THE 2023 FELLOWSHIP COMPETITION IS NOVEMBER 15, 2023
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.
A small number of outstanding scholars will be awarded fellowships funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (Fellowship Programs at Independent Research Institutions). All applicants for senior fellowships who meet the eligibility requirements (who are either US citizens or non-citizens who have resided in the US for at least three years), who request funding for at least four months, and whose projects fall into a range of humanistic disciplines will be considered for an NEH-funded fellowship in a separate review process. Those who are awarded NEH-funded fellowships will receive generous stipends of $5,000 per month. No additional application is required.
