IITH student awarded the Fulbright-Nehru fellowship
PhD student Sreya Majumdar, of Liberal Arts, has been awarded the Fulbright-Nehru Doctoral Research Fellowship (2020-21) by the United States India Educational Foundation (USIEF) to study midwifery and its history, and modern trajectory in the United States at the University of Texas, Austin for a period of nine months.
About the Fellowship
Fulbright-Nehru Awards enable the most outstanding students, academics and professionals in India and the U.S. to study, research and teach in the host country.
Indian scholars are selected through a rigorous application and interview process. Once selected, awardees receive support navigating the visa processing and securing health insurance, as well as a comprehensive pre-departure orientation.
The Commission is also the first point of contact for U.S. citizens coming to India on a Fulbright Fellowship. USIEF organizes programs and support throughout the year including an arrival orientation in August and an annual Fulbright Review Conference in March.
