About SAI Fellowship


The South Asia Institute at Harvard University offers opportunities for scholars and practitioners to utilize Harvard University’s resources to contribute to self-driven, independent research.

Scholars who have not had past opportunities to access Harvard’s resources and who have primarily been educated at institutions in South Asia will be prioritized. Fellows are expected to reside in the Cambridge vicinity during the time of their award and to actively participate in the events and intellectual life of the Institute.
