2010 Senior Fellowship Award Winner

2010 was the first year of the ANHS Senior Fellowship Program and we received several excellent applications. In order to highlight our broader mission and to better serve the research interests of our members, the ANHS Executive Council awarded two fellowships: one for Nepal and one for the high mountain regions of Asia outside Nepal.

ANHS hopes this award marks the beginning of a vital fellowship program to support projects that will advance knowledge about the greater Himalayan region. The awards for 2010 are:

Dr. Birendra Raj Giri, FELS/ChDL, The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK
Project Title: Bonded Labour Practice in Nepal

Dr. Sarah J. Halvorson, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Geography, University of Montana
Project Title: Community Vulnerability and Response to Glacial Retreat, Bhutan
