Somerville has established the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development to provide fully-funded scholarships to the best Indian graduate students. The OICSD equips students to lead change for issues of urgent global concern on their return to India. It also plays a key role in pioneering research and convening partnerships between academics, practitioners and policymakers to ensure lasting solutions to development concerns.
The OICSD provides funding for talented Indian graduate students who would not otherwise be able to take their places at Oxford.

The OICSD takes a multidisciplinary approach to research, bringing a broader understanding to sustainable development concerns facing India and the wider world.
