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. This fellowship has sent over 100 University of Michigan undergraduates to India since its inception in 2006.

Are You Interested in Becoming a Summer in South Asia Fellow?

This fellowship is designed to be flexible: you research and choose an NGO or company in India to volunteer with, tell us what you want to study, design a program to accomplish your goals and we will fund the best and most unique proposals to cover all or most of your costs. While we strongly encourage students to volunteer with existing institutions, agencies or organizations, working independently may also be acceptable. If you are interested in applying for the Summer in South Asia fellowship, the Center for South Asian Studies can assist you in connecting with organizations based in India and refining your final project topic. Learn more about the application process.
