The F├╝rer Haimendorf Fund for Anthropological Field Research

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.

To apply, submit proposals of 500 words and a budget by July 15th to the Departmental Director of Doctoral Studies. The maximum award available under the scheme is £1,500.
