The Subir and Malini Chowdhury Center announced two graduate scholarships. Each fellowship is in the amount of $7,500. The focus of all fellowships is the country and region of Bangladesh. Any student whose program of training and research significantly involves the study of contemporary Bangladesh, or historical work in the regions of India and Pakistan that would later become Bangladesh, is eligible, as is any student who does comparative or transnational work in which Bangladesh and its region form a central component.

  • The Subir Chowdhury Fellowship on Quality of Life in Bangladesh is for graduate students whose training or research includes a significant focus on the quality of life in Bangladesh; this fellowship is matched by the University’s Graduate Fellowship Matching Program.
  • The Malini Chowdhury Fellowship on Bangladesh Studies is for graduate students in any field concentrating on Bangladesh studies; this fellowship is also matched by the University’s Graduate Fellowship Matching Program.

Applications should be submitted by a program or a department’s Graduate Advisor or Graduate Student Affairs Officer. Students may be nominated for both fellowships.

Applications should be emailed to Program Director, Puneeta Kala, and must arrive by midnight on March 15, 2019. For further information, please see the The Subir and Malini Chowdhury Center website.
