Institute of International Education (IIE)- Dr.Gokhale international grants for graduates and undergraduate students
In response to the interest and inquiry of Dr. DV Gokhale, the Institute of International Education (IIE) has established The DV Gokhale International Grants/Loans in Statistics Program through donations and a bequest from Dr. Gokhale. This unique and much-needed program will provide grants and/or loans.
Eligibility requirements and candidate criteria:
- Indian undergraduate and graduate students¬†to¬†study statistics in the United States;
- American undergraduate and graduate students to study statistics and related subjects in India
Dr. DV Gokhale, Professor Emeritus of Statistics at the University of California at Riverside, received a Fulbright travel grant to study in the United States in the 1960s through IIE. This experience was one of the most important in his life, as it gave him the opportunity to study and make contacts in the United States. It eventually led to the move of Dr. Gokhale and his family to the United States, where they have been settled for the past 40 years.
In appreciation of his experience and with the desire to give other students and faculty this same opportunity, Dr. Gokhale would like to establish a grants program focused on helping Indian students to study statistics in the United States, American students to study statistics and related subjects in India and to enable faculty members in this field to participate in exchanges between the two countries.
