About WORLDS and WORLDS Fellowship
Workshop on Language Description and Sciences WORLDS is an annual workshop series conducted by the Department of Linguistics, K.M. Institute of Hindi and Linguistics, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar University, Agra. The major aim of the workshop series is to popularise and spread awareness about Linguistics among the undergraduate students of the country so as to encourage them to take up higher education and research in Linguistics. It is part of this effort that we have also instituted the  WORLDS Fellowship which would be available for the outstanding undergraduate participants of the workshop for pursuing M.A. in Linguistics at the department and attending the workshop. The fellowship includes free accommodation and travel and maintenance grant for attending the workshop, full refund of admission and tuition fee for pursuing M.A. in Linguistics at the Dept. of Linguistics, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar University, Agra (if the awardee decides to take admission at the dept.) and a certificate of excellence. The maximum number of fellowships to be awarded this year is 5.

This workshop is conceived as a mini fieldwork where the participants will be exposed to the basics of data collection, analysis and description, which will be conducted by some of the leading field linguists and experts of language description in India, followed by practical sessions on conducting fieldwork on the participants' own language. It is expected to expose the participants to the methods and ways of a linguist and would serve well to combine the theoretical promise with the real, practical problems and joys of the field!
