FINANCIAL SUPPORT: FELLOWSHIPS

ANIL AGARWAL FELLOWSHIPS FOR SOUTH ASIA

The Anil Agarwal Fellowships for South Asia support the participation of students and development professionals from South Asia in all training programmes conducted by the Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute.

These Fellowships have been instituted in the memory of Anil Agarwal, CSE's founder-director and a pioneer in India's environmental movement who spent his lifetime studying the relationship between environment and development and advocating policies that involve people in sustainable natural resource management.

A prolific writer and commentator, Agarwal has hundreds of articles and more than 20 books to his credit. Agarwal's efforts in environmental research and advocacy have been widely recognized, and he was the recipient of several international and national awards, including the prestigious Padma Bhushan, awarded by the Government of India.
