Writing Urban India (WUI) is an initiative that seeks to promote and advance writing and research publications on urbanisation in the Indian context. India’s ongoing development transformation has rich potential to generate valuable research insights for urban studies, but writing in this area has only touched the tip of the iceberg. This fellowship seeks to identify, enable, and facilitate early-stage researchers who are involved in the study of the urban in India to develop their own writing across issues and refine it to a stage where it could be published.
Who can apply?
WUI seeks to reach out to a diverse group of students / early-stage researchers / practitioners in urban studies in India. Specifically, those who can apply are:
a. Urban practitioners
b. Students enrolled in post-graduate programmes
c. M.Phil. / Ph.D. researchers
d. Independent researchers who are not part of an academic programme, but have a body of work on urban issues can also apply.
All details for the fellowship are available here.
The views shared belong to individual faculty and researchers and do not represent an institutional stance on the issue.
