The Guru Gobind Singh Fellowship is intended for graduates of universities in specific areas of India and Pakistan who are currently pursuing a graduate degree at the University of California. To be eligible, a student must:
- Be committed to returning to his or her country of origin after receiving the graduate degree
- Not have been engaged previously in graduate study at any other institution of higher learning in the United States
Students at any stage of graduate study may apply, but preference is given to those holding a master’s degree, and particularly those who have reached the dissertation stage and have exhausted the normal sources of financial support.
For 2019 – 2020 the fellowship award will be $30,000.
Apply now through the Tango portal. Applications are due May 23, 2019. (This is an extension to the previously published deadline.)
Created by a bequest from the late Karam Singh Maughn, the fellowship is named for Guru Gobind Singh (1666 – 1708), the tenth Guru of Sikhism — a leader of his faith, and a warrior, poet, and philosopher.
