Brown University

Summer 2013 Student Fellow Presentations

October 15, 2013

As the principal research body on campus focusing on India, a significant mission of the Brown-India Initiative is to facilitate students' academic involvement with the country. Last spring, the Initiative awarded nearly $75,000 in grants to Brown students and faculty engaging in research relevant to social, cultural and economic topics in India, and facilitated their work by creating partnerships for fellows with partner institutions in the country.

This week (Friday Oct. 18th) and next (Friday Oct. 25th), student recipients share the motives, stories and findings of their research with campus.
