About the fellowship

To me CRASSH has been a unique platform and probably a once in a life opportunity to explore transdisciplinary research
– Dr Ronita Bardhan, Charles Wallace India Trust Fellow (2018-19)

The Charles Wallace India Trust fellowship at CRASSH offers funding for a term of study and residence in Cambridge during the academic year. The scheme is intended for earlier-career academics from India (defined as resident and domiciled in India). Applicants should have been in full-time academic employment in an Indian university or research institute of equivalent standing for at least five years and have completed a PhD.

The Charles Wallace India Trust gives grants to Indians in the early or middle stages of their careers who are living in India and working or studying in the arts, heritage conservation or the humanities. The grants enable successful applicants to achieve their artistic, academic or professional ambitions through spending time in the United Kingdom. Please note that applicants who have received a CWIT award in the past five years (from date when in the UK), would not be considered eligible unless there are exceptional circumstances. Full information about the various types of grants available, and guidance on eligibility and how to apply, can be found on the website of the British Council in India.
