The OICSD advances India’s sustainable development by bringing different academic disciplines and sectors together. We develop future leaders by supporting exceptional Indian scholars to study at Oxford; we carry out multidisciplinary research on sustainable nutrition, the environment and health; and we translate academic ideas to the ground.
The OICSD provides funding for talented Indian graduate students who would not otherwise be able to take their places at Oxford.
