L’American Institute of Indian Studies annonce l’ouverture des candidatures à leur bourse de recherche 2019. Les catégories de bourses de recherche comprennent les suivantes :
Bourses Junior (Junior Fellowships): destinées aux étudiants diplômés effectuant des recherches pour leur thèse de doctorat en Inde.
Bourses de perfectionnement à long et à court terme (Senior Long- and Short-term Fellowships) : destinées aux titulaires du doctorat.
Bourses pour les arts de la scène et les arts créatifs (Performing and Creative Arts Fellowships) : disponibles pour les praticiens des arts accomplis qui souhaitent mener leurs projets en Inde.
The AIIS fellowship competition is not restricted to those from its member institutions. Non-U.S. citizens may apply as long as they are either graduate students or full-time faculty at colleges and universities in the United States. Approximately 35 fellowships are awarded each year.
Applications from scholars who are part of a collaborative project involving other scholars are welcome, though AIIS fellowships are granted to individuals, not to teams. Amounts awarded to successful applicants who are members of group projects will be equivalent to fellowships awarded to scholars who submitted applications for individual projects.
Fellowships are funded by both U.S. government grants and AIIS endowment funds. Most of the federal funds received are restricted to U.S. citizens; non-U.S. citizens and performing/creative arts fellows are generally funded by the AIIS endowment. The number of fellowships AIIS can offer depends on the funding available from the different sources, though all applicants are reviewed equally and simultaneously. The AIIS strongly encourages applications from non-U.S. citizens and U.S. citizens alike, and remains committed to providing research opportunities to all qualified candidates regardless of nationality. It also seeks additional private support to increase the number of its awards. Fellowships are funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities* (also available to permanent residents); the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States State Department and the Council of American Overseas Research Centers under the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961, as amended; and the Smithsonian Institution. Fellowships for six months or more may include support for dependents.

All AIIS fellows will need to obtain certification of U.S. Tax Residency, to certify that the fellowship recipient is a resident of the U.S. and thus subject to the tax laws of the U.S. and does not have to pay tax on the fellowship stipend in India. In order to obtain such certification, fellows will need to go to the IRS web site to fill out Form 8802 to be submitted to the IRS, which will then issue a Form 6166 which certifies that the individual listed on the application is a resident of the U.S. for purposes of the income tax laws of the United States. Fellows will also be asked to fill out Form 10F for the Indian government.
