CASI Visiting Scholars / Fellows Program

CASI’s Visiting Scholars/Fellows Program is designed to bring individuals to the University of Pennsylvania with different areas of expertise from academia, the bureaucracy and civil services, NGOs, and civil society (such as media). Fellows and Scholars are in residence at CASI for a period of two months. They participate in Center events; engage in a scholarly research project; present their research as a part of the CASI seminar series; and interact with undergraduate and graduate students and Penn faculty. The program aligns with the Center’s key goals to nurture a new generation of intellectual leadership on contemporary India. CASI also collaborates with departments and schools across Penn to co-sponsor visiting scholars and fellows. Outside Penn, CASI has partnered with the New India Foundation in bringing past New India Foundation Fellows to the Center.
