The World Council of Jain Academies (WCJA) sponsors annually five students or staff members from European Universities which are committed to Jain Studies to spend one-two months in India to study or research the Jain tradition at the place of its origin. The value of each scholarship is £1000.

Students or staff members can either join the International Summer School for Jain Studies organized by the North American Chapter of the World Council of Jain Academies, which is recommended, or pursue an Independent Study Project. Information on the International Summer School for Jain Studies can be requested from Professor Cromwell Crawford of the University of Hawaii:

Suitable candidates will be selected by the Board of the Centre of Jaina Studies at SOAS according to their academic merit on the basis of e-mailed applications, accompanied by a letter of recommendation by the supervisor or head of department, and a CV.

The money will only be made available to candidates who are studying or working at a fully accredited European University, and who can demonstrate how the project to be conducted during the study period in India fits into their respective degree or teaching programme (e.g. letter of supervisor on method of examination).

The awards are granted by the Centre of Jaina Studies at SOAS. They are sponsored by the World Council of Jain Academies to promote the academic study of Jainism.

Inquiries and applications should be addressed to the Chair of the Centre of Jaina Studies at the Department of the Study of Religions of the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London:
