Applications to the tenth round of New India Foundation Fellowships are open until 31st August 2020. 

Open to Indian nationals,  the NIF Fellowship carries a stipend of Rs 150,000 per month for a year, apart from editorial and publishing support.

Twenty-two titles have been published under the NIF aegis, many of which have gone on to become seminal and award-winning works on contemporary Indian history.

The Fellowship holders shall be expected to write original books. They may choose to write a memoir, or a work of reportage, or a thickly footnoted academic study. Their books could be oriented towards economics, or politics, or culture. Proposals should be oriented towards publication, and outline a road map towards that destination.
