The Rutgers Program in South Asian Studies promotes the study of the South Asia region and its diasporic communities through the development of an interdisciplary set of courses, speakers' series, and public events. It offers a South Asian Studies Minor, giving undergraduate students the vital opportunity to study South Asian history, geography, societies, culture, economics, languages, and literatures.


We invite you to make a gift to the South Asian Studies Program Gift Fund and make a difference to SAS students and faculty which will benefit the following initiatives:

  • Develop an endowment to offer annual pre-dissertation research awards for PhD students studying South Asia
  • Host an annual lecture or sponsored memorial lectures
  • Expand cultural programs pertaining to South Asia
  • Advance new avenues of teaching and outreach to the South Asian community in New Jersey
  • Develop new interdisciplinary research initiatives (e.g. on cities, on contemporary art, on water & sanitation, on classical dance) or to host workshops and colloquia
  • Expand the range of South Asian language courses and instructional resources available at Rutgers
  • Sponsor an endowed chair in South Asian Studies, or an academic chair dedicated to a specific sub-field, country, or region of South Asia
  • Host speakers or visitors from South Asia


You can support this program by making a secure online donation.
