Since its inception in 2003, the South Asia Initiative (SAI) has raised the profile of South Asian studies at Harvard and internationally; generated interdisciplinary research; sent faculty and students to South Asia for study, research and service learning; and conducted high-profile seminars and conferences. The SAI has forged links and synergies across Harvard’s Schools and has enriched intellectual life on campus by organizing academic seminars and conferences that cut across various disciplines.
he South Asia Initiative offers grants each year to students pursuing interests in South Asia. This year, 10 graduate students were selected to participate in the SAI Graduate Associate Program for 2010-11. This summer, the SAI will support 49 undergraduate and graduate students traveling to South Asia to conduct research, perform fieldwork, participate in internships, and pursue South Asian language study.
