CASI Visiting Scholars / Fellows Program
CASI’s Visiting Scholars/Fellows Program is designed to bring four individuals a year to the University of Pennsylvania. Each Scholar/Fellow will be identified from one of four different areas of expertise: the bureaucracy and civil services; NGOs; civil society (such as media); and a senior scholar. Fellows and Scholars are in residence at CASI for a period of two months. They are expected to fully participate in Center events; engage in a scholarly research project that would become a working paper of the Center; give at least one formal lecture 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. The CASI-New India Foundation Visiting Fellow program is now in its second year.
