New India Foundation Fellowship

Fellowship holders are expected to write original books. Their proposals should be oriented towards final publication, and outline a road map towards that destination.

The Foundation is ecumenical as regards genre, theme, and ideology: the only requirement is that the proposed works contribute to the fuller understanding of independent India.

Thus Fellowship holders may choose to write a memoir, or a work of reportage, or a thickly footnoted academic study. Their books could be oriented towards economics, or politics, or culture. They could be highly specific-an account of a single decade or a single region-or wide-ranging, such as a countrywide overview.



  • Indian nationals, including those currently living abroad

Duration:12- months

Monetary Support:Rs. 90,000 a month
