Call for Scholarship Applications: The Karun Thakar Fund in association with the V&A.
The Karun Thakar Fund is presented by Karun Thakar in collaboration with the V&A. In its inaugural 2021 – 2022 year the fund will offer one-time scholarships of up to £10,000 to students studying any aspect of Asian or African textiles and/or dress at any university in the world.
The Karun Thakar Fund aims to enrich the fields of Asian and African textiles and dress by supporting new and original approaches to study and practice, foregrounding fresh perspectives and ground-breaking research.
Using the collections of the V&A and Karun Thakar as points of departure, the Fund promotes materials-based, object-led learning and encourages meaningful and innovative approaches to Asian and African textile and dress studies.
Awardees’ work will be featured on the V&A blog, creating a platform for international conversation and knowledge exchange both at the V&A and beyond.
University students studying at BA, MA or PhD level attending any accredited university either in the UK or internationally are eligible, provided they can establish that their research/practice is tangibly linked to Asian or African textiles/dress.
