Education and Research

Prospective Students

Students with a core Southern Asia interest entering any of the degree-granting programs across the University would have access to, and be able to participate in COSAS events, regularly meet and collaborate with Southern Asia faculty and students outside their disciplines and departments, and be eligible for FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) fellowships, and for other graduate fellowships administered by COSAS for research in Southern Asia.

Funding Opportunities

COSAS funding is generally restricted to current graduate students at the University of Chicago. This includes COSAS fellowships, travel grants and small research grants.

College students and graduate students may apply for occasional “Special Projects.” Projects supported in the recent years have included campus-based arts programs, workshops, and conferences with a central focus on Southern Asia.
