CSIP Research Fellowship Application
Monday, August 24, 2020
An unprecedented example of collective public philanthropy in India, Ashoka University is a private nonprofit institution focused on the Liberal Arts, offering undergraduate and postgraduate programs across the humanities, social sciences and fundamental natural sciences. The aim is to help students become well-rounded individuals who are able to think critically about issues from multiple perspectives, communicate effectively and go on to become ethical self-aware leaders with a commitment to public service.
Philanthropy in India is rapidly gaining momentum, yet relevant research remains scarce. Therefore, the Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy (CSIP) at Ashoka University is launching a research fellowship aimed at building this field, strengthening research capacity, and creating high quality, rigorous outputs.
Beginning late October 2020, a cohort of 10 fellows will spend 9 months conducting research on a topic related to Indian philanthropy and giving trends. The fellows are expected to undertake primary research, attend monthly calls, and participate in three online workshops to develop their skills in background research, literature review, data collection methods, analysis and writing.
