The Charles Wallace India Trust
The Charles Wallace India Trust is an arts, heritage conservation and humanities scholarship fund managed by the British Council.
The Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies has been selected to provide the Iqbal Sarin Visiting Fellowship in Journalism.
This Fellowship provides an opportunity for a journalist to write a piece of supervised research on an agreed aspect of the media for up to three months. It is intended to be mutually beneficial and the fellow is expected to contribute to the life of the School.
It supports Indians in the early or middle stage of their careers to spend focused time in the UK, helping to achieve their artistic, professional or academic ambitions.
Fellows are selected by agreement between the host institution and the trust, in some cases with the help of the British Council. For further information please visit the British Council website or contact the arts section in your nearest British Council Office. Do not apply directly to the School.
Current and recent fellows are:
- Atul Sethi, Summer 2010 Charles Wallace Fellowship, Researching cultural heritage in the UK and the reporting of heritage issues in the media.
- Abhinav Garg, Summer 2009 Charles Wallace Fellowship, Researching the effects of the Freedom of Information Act, since its inception in the United Kingdom.
- Paromita Pain, Summer 2008 Charles Wallace Fellowship, Researching ways in which the British media works to hold the attention of its young people.
