TRG Visiting Fellowships

The TRG Visiting Fellowships at the German Historical Institute London were initiated in 2014. The fellowships are awarded to scholars either working specifically on the theme of education and poverty or whose research interests overlap with the agenda of the TRG. While the focus of the TRG is on India, the group is keenly interested in comparative research. Hence, the visiting fellowships may be awarded to scholars working on the subject in other regions or in a comparative framework. The fellowships are ordinarily awarded for 1-3 months with the aim of enabling the visiting fellows to pursue research related to the agenda of the TRG in British libraries and archives. It is expected that they will contribute to the work of the group by taking part in its activities as well as giving a public talk on a subject of interest to the TRG.
