The deadline for applying to the Second Cohort of our India China Scholar-Leaders Initiative (CISLI) Fellowship is September 15, 2017. Applications and supporting letters must be submitted no later than today to be considered. The CFP for the CISLI Fellowship can be found here.
The Fellowship offers an intensive 24 month professional development experience for junior scholars focused on the theme of Prosperity and Inequality in India and China. Fellows will develop a research project related to their area of expertise and connected to the theme of Prosperity and Inequality. Fellows will also have the opportunity to spend one month in New York City and 5-7 weeks conducting fieldwork on their research topic in India or China. Fellows will be provided research support and methods training, as well as interactions with noted scholars working on Prosperity and Inequality in India and China. Fellows will be expected to produce at least one publishable article, policy paper or scholarly piece by the end of the Fellowship. The Fellowship includes an award of USD $5,000, and covers all travel-related costs, funding support for field research, and all New York residency costs (food, lodging, travel, etc.). The total value of the Fellowship is approximately USD $37,000. The program is structured so that Fellows can largely continue primary teaching or research obligations at their home institutions while also participating in the Fellowship.
