For application guidelines, see the full call for proposals.

In Academic Year 2017–2018, the Duke India Initiaitve (DII) invites proposals to support DUCIGS Graduate Working Groups.  The DII intends to fund student-driven graduate working groups interested in working on themes related to India that are interdisciplinary in membership.
Groups should plan to meet a minimum of four times each semester, during which graduate students are encouraged to share their individual perspectives on global issues. This is also a great opportunity for students to receive feedback from a variety of academic disciplines on their own research. We will provide funding for expenses related to meetings – including food, group readings and audio-visual materials. Working groups may have the opportunity to apply for additional support for special projects and events during the academic year, including publications, workshops, symposia, and mini-conferences.
