India Initiative

Courses and Faculty

Taj Mahal

There are over 20 faculty and researchers already doing India-related work at GW, drawn from a variety of disciplines, including international affairs, business, public health, political science, law, anthropology, religion and regional development.

The India Initiative hopes to have a range of scholarly and policy activities: high-level conferences, policy dialogues, student scholarships, visiting fellowships, specialized lecture series and a professorship in India Studies. The Elliott School has already signed a memorandum of understanding for a student and faculty exchange program with Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, and the Indian American Education Foundation has provided seed funds to help establish student scholarships in India Studies.
