Since 1961, American knowledge of India has been shaped by the American Institute of Indian Studies.
The American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) was formed to further the knowledge of India in the United States by supporting American scholarship on India. The programs of AIIS promote and advance mutual understanding between the citizens of the U. S. and of India. With offices and research centers in the United States and India, research centers at its campus in Gurgaon, and a centrally located office in Delhi, the Institute:
-Provides research fellowship support for scholars, Ph.D. candidates and artists
-Offers training in Indian languages where they are spoken
-Extends knowledge of Indian culture through its two research centers, the Center for Art & Archaeology and the Archives and Research Center for Ethnomusicology
-Supports book publications and articles about India
-Facilitates service learning programs and internships for American students with Indian NGOs and provides a range of services to U.S. study abroad programs in India
-Organizes conferences, workshops and special programs to advance the understanding of India and to foster exchange and collaboration between scholars in India, the U.S. and other countries in South Asia
