Nehru Trust Awards and Grants
The Trust, in collaboration with the Charles Wallace (India) Trust, annually awards up to three Visiting Fellowships for further professional training, study, education or research to citizens of India who are at an early stage of their professional career and are employed by museums, galleries or other institutions concerned with the study, preservation and display of India's art and cultural heritage.
The Fellowships are for a period of up to three months, and provide a return airfare to and from the UK and a maintenance allowance adequate for a single person.
The Trust makes two travel awards annually. The awards are open to citizens of India who are established scholars or professionals working in museums, galleries or other specified institutions concerned with the preservation, study and display of India's art and cultural heritage.

These grants are also available to holders of UK Visiting Fellowships and UK Travel Awards.
