Scholarship Applications Open for 2023

Applications are now open for our 2023 scholarships! 

April 26, 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of the Center for India Studies, now the Bishembernath & Sheela Mattoo Center for India Studies. From the early days as a response to a student initiative to bring India-related courses into the curriculum, the Center has grown into an internationally recognized resource serving campus and community.
We will soon announce events to celebrate this milestone – and we hope you will celebrate with us.
