ICKCBI Student Fellows traveling in Kolkata.

Are you a student interested in spending time traveling, working or conducting research in India or China? Over the years the India China Institute has supported dozens of students from The New School and other universities in India and China interested in learning and studying in the region. We have collected a variety of resources that may prove useful for students who want more information about what support is available from the India China Institute, past wisdom from students involved in our program, travel tips and lots more.

If you are a student who has been living, working or traveling in China or India and have ideas or resources to contribute, please send us an e-mail and let us know about your ideas!
