Shivdasani Visiting Fellowship

The Shivdasani Visiting Fellowship is offered to support study in any area of the arts, humanities, or social sciences relevant to the study of Hinduism. It is kindly sponsored by Mr Azad Shivdasani. The Shivdasani Fellowship is by invitation only. 

The Fellowship is intended to provide opportunities for scholars who have shown outstanding achievement in their chosen field of study and who would benefit from a period of independent study at Oxford. Transport to Oxford, accommodation, and a small stipend are provided for one term.

Shivdasani Fellows participate fully in the Centre’s academic and social activities. The scholar receiving this fellowship is expected to be in residence for a full term.

The Shivdasani Fellowships continue to add value to the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies and to Hindu Studies globally as it brings scholars in contact with our students and fellows as well as the wealth of resources Oxford offers. It is a key priority of the OCHS to expand this programme.
