The U.S. Department of Education has awarded the South Asia Center (SAC) in the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs nearly $1.4 million in Title VI language and area studies funding.

The four-year award will support the creation of a pipeline of students proficient in modern South Asian languages, who will undertake field research, internships, employment and further language training.

The funding also will help infuse South Asian studies into community college and teacher development programs, and will expose students and faculty to diverse perspectives about sustainability through a new Sustainable South Asia Initiative.
