Are you…

  • Looking for research on India China studies?
  • Considering a volunteer or RA position to enhance your writing, research and administrative skills?
  • Searching for ways to study and travel for your research interests?

Since the inception of the India China Institute (ICI) in 2005, active engagement with students has been central to the development of course curriculum, grant and scholarship offerings and the dissemination of information concerning India China studies. In addition, student volunteers and research assistants are significant contributors to ICI’s day-to-day operations, assisting with research projects, public programming and administrative tasks. Students gain not only valuable knowledge about India China relations, but invaluable volunteer and work experiences that will assist them in their future educational and professional endeavors.

There is plenty of room to grow at ICI. Students that have participated in our grant and fellowship programs have gone on to become ICI-affiliated scholars; applying their knowledge to investigate, research and develop new scholarship. For Ph.D students and post-graduate scholars, ICI provides academic and research support and opportunities to publish and/or present their work at academic conferences and institutional think-tanks across the globe.

Below are some of ICI’s initiatives and services designed to support students with their research on issues pertaining to India and China.

Here’s what some of our past students had to say:

Being a part of the India–China Interactions class, I feel like I’m taking part in a unique opportunity. I have never heard of a class that deals with this relationship so specifically. Class discussion was dynamic because my fellow classmates all bring individual interests in these countries and unique backgrounds to the classroom.
