Student Fellowships

Our student fellowships include the Frank F. Conlon Fellowship in South Asian Studies, which helps any graduate student working on South Asia, who qualifies for financial aid, to pursue their studies. Visit the Student Support page for more information on the Conlon Fellowship.

We also award the India Association of Western Washington Fellowship to one undergraduate student and on graduate student annually. These awards go to outstanding students with a demonstrated interest in the study of South Asia. Visit the Student Support page for more information on the IAWW Fellowship.

The South Asia Studies Student Fund supports undergraduate and graduate students in South Asia Studies with field research, travel, and/or conference attendance expense, and/or to provide support for student-selected speakers.

Center Activities

The South Asia Center relies exclusively on community support for many of our activities including the sponsorship of current affairs events, the hosting of Distinguished Visitors, and musical and artistic gatherings. The Friends of South Asia fund supports these activities.
