  • All UM Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors are eligible to apply (This fellowship prefers students who have not spent extensive time in India.  To see if your prior travel to India would make you ineligible, please email Janelle Fosler at

  • On October 8, 2015, all fellows will participate in a symposium where they will present their research project
