As part of the Institute for Asian Research, CISAR contributes to teaching and administration of the MAPPS (Masters of Asia Pacific Policy Studies) program at UBC. CISAR also serves as a university wide resource for undergraduate and graduate education at UBC. CISAR supports graduate work related to South Asia on the UBC campus by providing competitive fellowships and awards. We offer a limited number of travel grants to graduate students interested in presenting their work on South Asia at a scholarly conference. In addition, CISAR also supports the organization of the graduate student portion of SACPAN, the annual regional South Asia conference organized jointly by UBC, University of Washington, and other universities in the region.
