Harvard University’s Lakshmi Mittal South Asia Institute (SAI) is soon going to open its India headquarter in New Delhi.
“Harvard would not be what it is if it was not capable of attracting the best brains from all over the world. We intend to create a small embassy at the institute, which will help the students and researchers to study at Harvard,” said Mark Elliott, vice provost of International Affairs, Harvard University
Harvard University’s New Delhi centre will enroll post-doctorate students in multidisciplinary research, fellowship and artistic residences, publications and more. The centre will help the university to enhance its association with South Asian subcontinent. Throughout 2018, leading scholars from South Asia-related fields are delivering a series of free public lectures in Delhi.
“Since Harvard offers several fully-funded courses, with several undergraduate courses inviting generous funding, it is all about getting the right kind of students from South-Asia. Since India has a huge potential to explore the research opportunities at Harvard, all that is needed is applying at the right time,” said Elliott.
A similar initiative was started in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where the institute acted as a window to offer guidance to deserving students applying in Harvard.
