Postdoctoral scholars and professionals of equivalent standing may apply for one of 21 research fellowships being offered by the Indo-U.S. Subcommission on Education and Culture. The fellowships are to be held in India and are available in any academic discipline. Twelve of the fellowships are long-term and may be held for 6–10 months, while nine may be held for 2–3 months.
People with little or no connection to India are especially encouraged to apply, as the goal of the program is to broaden the range of research topics in which information is exchanged between the United States and India. Each fellow will receive a stipend of $1500 (of which $1150 will be paid in rupees) per month, a book allowance, and travel allowances for both international and internal Indian travel. Those holding the longer-term fellowships will receive additional benefits for the transportation and support of dependents. Applicants must U.S. citizens. The program is funded by the U.S. Information Agency, the National Science Foundation, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Government of India.
