Student Funding Opportunities

The South Asia Program's funding resources for undergraduate and graduate students include summer and academic year Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships for the study of modern South Asian languages.

The Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies coordinates the Fulbright U.S. Student Program and the Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Program, through which students can travel to South Asia.

South Asian Studies Fellowships

From 2017 to 2020, the South Asia Program provided South Asian Studies Fellowships to scholars, writers, curators, and artists based in South Asia to visit Cornell University for two and four months. At this time, the fellowship program is paused, and we hope to resume these fellowship opportunities in the future.

Co-sponsorship of Campus Activities

SAP provides co-sponsorship funding to student organizations and Cornell departments planning academic events that support SAP’s mission of promoting knowledge and awareness of South Asia. SAP does not co-sponsor events that are primarily political, religious or social activities. Please send co-sponsorship requests to the SAP Program Manager.

Funding Opportunities are sorted chronologically from oldest to newest by application deadline and timeframe.
