Proposal deadline: Thursday, February 23, 2017   

Attention Maxwell School PhD Students
The South Asia Center announces the competition for the Bharati Memorial Award for the summer of 2017 (or AY 2017-18) for grants leading to doctoral dissertation research. Students in PhD programs in the Maxwell School are preferred. Students in other programs may apply, and we will fund if other funding becomes available. We are especially interested in supporting pre-dissertation research, although short-term dissertation research can be supported. We anticipate awarding 1-5 grants for 2017. Only projects concerning South Asia are eligible. Previous recipients of this or other grants awarded through the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs are eligible, but not top priority.Grants will range from $500 to a maximum of $1500.You may apply for more than one summer grant from the Moynihan Institute, but you will not receive more than one in a given year. Other types of support that could exclude you from receiving a summer research grant include summer FLAS, summer de Sardon-Glass support, and any other summer support from the Moynihan Institute.  Awards are ranked separately, so if your proposal  is accepted by more than one committee, you will be awarded the better opportunity. If you win an award this year, you may apply for this or another award next year.

DEADLINE: Thursday, February 23, 2017

Complete guidelines are available at: The Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, 346 Eggers Hall
