We would greatly appreciate if you could nominate two candidates to this program. If a selected candidate is a doctoral student, the HYI will offer a fellowship for the student to come as a visiting fellow affiliated with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Harvard-Yenching Institute. The study and research of a candidate should be related to South Asian Studies in the field of humanities and social sciences. There is no specific age limit, but we strongly prefer younger scholars in a crucial stage of their career growth and development. we welcome nominations in all social science and humanities areas of Indian studies.
Attached please find an application form. In addition, an applicant should provide three letters of recommendation. After initial review of the application dossier, we will select half of the candidates for interview this winter (December and the first half of January) for further consideration. We hope that two or three promising candidates will be selected to come for a research stay at the Harvard-Yenching Institute during the 2019-20 academic year.
Candidates must be Chinese citizens; applications for nomination to the program should be submitted to the international office and affiliated department of their home university.
