CASI Student Programs in India
The Center for the Advanced Study of India (CASI) at the University of Pennsylvania provides funding and support to undergraduate and graduate students to conduct independent research and volunteer internships in India. Since 2007, CASI has provided funding to nearly 100 Penn students. This year we are announcing the first CASI post-baccalaureate fellowship, The Sobti Family Fellowship Fund, to support a recent Penn graduate to conduct an independent research project in India.
Funds for the CASI internships are made possible through the support of Penn’s Office of the Vice Provost for Global Initiatives in conjunction with Penn Abroad and Penn’s International Internship Program (IIP) and through the generous support of CASI donors.
