Center for the Advanced Study of India

The Center for the Advanced Study of India (CASI) introduces Penn students to India to learn beyond the classroom environment, gain valuable international work experience, and facilitate cultural exchange. Since 2007, CASI has provided funding to over 150 Penn students to participate in volunteer internships and conduct independent research during the summer months. CASI also supports one recent graduate through a post-baccalaureate fellowship, the Sobti Family Fellowship

Terry B. Heled Travel & Research Grant

The winner of the Terry B. Heled Travel & Research Grant will receive $2,000 toward the costs of travel for research that will lead to a significant writing project.  The travel and research will be conducted during the summer (between mid-May and the end of August). Candidates who propose a trip of longer rather than shorter duration will be given priority, and candidates who propose to travel beyond North America will also get priority, but any travel plan—to any place, of any length—will receive serious consideration based on the quality of the project.
