Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am Uttaran Dutta, a doctoral candidate/ graduate lecturer in the Brian
Lamb School of Communication, Purdue University. Currently, I am
studying the knowledge systems and everyday struggles of indigenous
communities of eastern India (with an emphasis on their communicative
aspects). More specifically, the study is examining how the indigenous
communities collectively identify their development needs and how they
collaboratively formulate and design locally-situated intervention
strategies to accomplish their development goals.
I have already completed my preliminary research; and now I am planning
to apply for grant(s) to conduct the next phase of the research project
i.e. to collaboratively design the contextual solutions and making
prototypes/ models, in the villages of eastern India. I will utilize the
financial support/ grant money primarily for purchasing equipments, raw
materials and paying wages to local indigenous participants.
It will be of great help if you can suggest me some of the funding
possibilities available/ allocated for conducting such studies/ projects.
Many thanks for your time and kind attention.
