Each year, CGI partners with a dozen academic programs and centers across campus to provide grants (maximum $5000) for graduate students, through the annual Summer Funding Application for pre-dissertation and dissertation fieldwork and research during the summer on the theme of Global India. Please email [email protected] with your proposal and an itemized budget.

For grants specifically awarded by CGI through the Summer Funding Application, priority will be given to graduate students who also apply for supplementary funding from organizations outside Princeton University (e.g., NSF, Luce, SSRC) and complete the PIIRS External Funding Form on SAFE. Applicants are expected to inform CGI if they receive awards from other sources as soon as that information is available.
