The Center for the Advanced Study of India (CASI) at the University of Pennsylvania provides funding and support to current Penn undergraduate and graduate students to travel to India and conduct independent research and participate in volunteer internships based at selected CASI partner organizations. CASI also offers a nine-month post-baccalaureate fellowship to support a recent Penn graduate to conduct an independent research project in India.
Since 2007, CASI has provided funding to over 125 Penn students. CASI internships are made possible through the financial 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.
The December Open House is an opportunity to meet with past students to learn more about their experiences in India and discuss the application process for CASI Internships, Travel Funds for Research, and the Sobti Family Fellowship.
