Conference Travel Grants

Stanford’s Center for South Asia offers three conference travel grants each year to continuing Stanford graduate students.

The Travel Grant is open to all graduate students who are presenting a paper at the Annual Conference on South Asia in Madison, Wisconsin. Awards of up to $600 are paid as reimbursements, after completion of travel to offset hotel fees, conference registration, and travel costs. Priority will be given to students who have not received this grant before.
