Eligibility criteria

  • You are a PhD student presently enrolled at Lund University
  • You plan to travel during 2023 for a purpose that directly relates to your doctoral research about South Asia or one or many states in the region (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka).
