NIF begins round 2 of Translation Fellowship application

The New India Foundation (NIF) has started applications for the second round of the NIF Translation Fellowships for the 2024 session. The last date to register online for the scholarship is December 31. The NIF Translation Fellowship is aimed to encourage translations from non-fiction works in regional Indian languages into English.

The NIF Translation Fellowships seeks to showcase India’s rich history through its diverse languages and literary knowledge traditions. The first round of the NIF Translation Fellowships have been awarded to Bangla, Kannada and Marathi and are slated for publication by 2025. These three translations, a NIF official statement said, will supplement the 32 books already published under the New India Foundation aegis through the flagship Book Fellowship programme. 

The aim of the Translation Fellowships is to increase the span of the NIF’s mission to sponsor research and writing on all aspects of Independent India, it added.

The Fellowship for the 2024 session will be awarded on the basis of the choice of text, quality of translation and overall project proposal.
