The Fürer Haimendorf Fund

The primary purpose of the Fürer Haimendorf Fund is to support research in South Asia by SOAS doctoral students. Priority will be given to those students wishing to work in the same areas as Professor von Fürer-Haimendorf.

Professor von Fürer-Haimendorf was also a pioneer in the use of film and photography as ethnographic tools. Students working with these technologies are also eligible to apply for funding regardless of their region of ethnographic specialization, but in the knowledge that applicants working is South Asia will be given priority.

Applicants are asked to submit proposals of 500 words and costings by May 15th to the Research Tutor, Dr Stephen Hughes. The maximum award available under the scheme is £1,500.
