Award Description

The Charles Wallace India Trust (CWIT) is an arts, heritage conservation and humanities scholarship fund. It was established in 1981 and funded from the estate of Charles William Wallace.

Wallace was born in Calcutta in 1855 and died in London in 1916. His business interests in India and South Asia flourished and he believed his modest fortune should benefit the people among whom he had made it. For nearly thirty years CWIT has offered scholarships and grants for Indians working in these fields to spend time in the UK.

Value of Award

The awards, which are generally from 2–3 months up to a maximum of a year, cover accommodation and living costs in the UK, fees and a contribution to international fares

Eligibility Criteria

Applicants should be

  • studying in fields covered by CWIT
  • be Indian citizens domiciled in India
  • Between 25-38 years of age
  • Not in receipt of a CWIT grant in previous 5 years
