About
Sahapedia is an open encyclopedic resource on the arts, cultures and histories of India. Sahapedia offers digital content in multimedia format—articles and books, photo essays and video, interviews and oral histories, maps and timelines, authored by scholars and curated by experts. Subject areas range from ideas and belief systems, rituals and practices, to visual and performing arts.
To provide enthusiasts, students, and scholars an opportunity to engage with and explore India’s rich cultural heritage, Sahapedia is pleased to announce the third edition of its Fellowship program.
UNESCO’s Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage 2003 (referred to as UNESCO 2003 Convention hereafter), refers to “the importance of the intangible cultural heritage as a mainspring of cultural diversity and a guarantee of sustainable development.” The Sahapedia–UNESCO Fellowship is part of our efforts to raise awareness – at local, national and international levels – of the importance of intangible heritage, and increase access to communities, groups and individuals. The Sahapedia–UNESCO Fellowship 2019 is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India.
Eligibility 
The fellowship is available to post-graduates and above qualified in the disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences in the broadest sense, or those with equivalent experience. Candidates with prior professional or academic familiarity with the subject under application may be given preference. The Fellowship is available to only those candidates holding an Indian bank account. Candidates who were awarded the Sahapedia-UNESCO Fellowship previously are not eligible to apply.
Duration
Fellowship has to be completed in the time-frame of twenty-eight (28) weeks between 1 September 2019 and 15 March 2020. Failure to submit the Fellowship requirements within the stipulated timeframe will result in the cancelation of that Fellowship.
