Student Opportunities

DUCIGS Graduate Working Groups

The Duke India Initiaitve (DII) is pleased 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 and student-driven in their design.
Meetings are held roughly 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. DII provides 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.

For 2017 - 2018, the Duke India Initiative is proud to co-sponsor the following groups:
