Deadline: February 15, 2022
Prajnya invites applications for the 2022 R. Rajaram GRIT Research Fellowships.
Founded in the memory of R. Rajaram in his centenary year, the Fellowship is intended to support original research on a subject relating to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). The Fellowship has also included specific research responsibilities at Prajnya.
The 2022 Rajaram Fellowship is envisioned as a programme of support–financial, mentoring and networking–for original research on sexual or gender-based violence. The Fellowship will support each project financially for upto INR 50,000. In 2022, we propose to offer Fellowship support to two academic/ policy projects. The projects must be completed within a mutually agreed time-frame of no longer than one year.
The proposed project will study some aspect of sexual and gender-based violence. We are open to supporting projects that investigate the social, economic and/or political conditions surrounding the occurrence of SGBV; their prevalence and/or consequences; how policies and budget allocations have worked or should work; or any other relevant topic. The project should be original and have a feasible research design.
Rajaram Research Fellows will have at minimum a Master’s degree in the social sciences, policy studies or humanities with evidence of research experience (for instance, a published or unpublished research paper). Applicants can be current graduate students or employees at a policy/research organisation who are seeking additional funding for their research. The primary language for written projects will be English and therefore, English proficiency is essential but research proficiency in one other Indian language is desirable.
Applications will be accepted only via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and must be submitted by February 15, 2022. Only complete applications will be considered, and they must include:

The Prajnya Archives are offering two six-month internships a year, starting from 2017. For those who are selected, the Internships present an opportunity to learn practical documentation skills, to visualise careers in history and to engage with the exciting and important work of making visible South Asian women’s engagement with the world around them.
The Prajnya Archives are a user-generated repository of visual records that document the role that women have played in the public sphere. We invite people to upload their photos on an on-going basis and also put out thematic calls for photos at least once a year. These entries are then added to the Archives.
Internship responsibilities will include:
The Interns will work with both the Archives Curators and with the Prajnya Team. They will be expected to put in about 15 hours a week. They will receive a letter of completion on successfully finishing their assignments.
We are looking for an Archives Intern with an established interest in history, women’s studies, museum studies or anthropology, although people from other backgrounds are invited to apply.
This is an unpaid internship. A Chennai location would suit us best but relocation is not essential as much of the work will be done online.

Remuneration: Rs. 20,000-30,000, based on experience
