This fellowship supports students who propose to be engaged in summer research that would benefit their project/doctoral research. This includes the study of any Southern Asian languages. For example, COSAS may cover study at the University of Wisconsin’s SASLI and SESAI programs and other eligible programs, including the CAORC institute programs such as the AIIS. Funding may also be applied to support the study of languages not covered under FLAS (e.g. Sanskrit and Pali), and any other non-language related research conducted during the summer.


University of Chicago graduate students conducting research over the summer related to their doctoral project/primary research project. PhD candidates seeking support for dissertation writing should apply to the the COSAS Dissertation Writing Support Fellowship. Students can also seek out support for non-priority projects through the COSAS Fellowships for Other Projects.
