Indiaspora, powered by 360Plus, is proud to announce HeritageINDIA, a unique, immersive 3-week program for students of Indian descent to connect with their ancestral homeland. It is designed for students to experience India’s rich cultural history, participate in hands-on projects, engage in stimulating discussions, and create lifelong bonds with a cohort that will share in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

HeritageINDIA will take place July 21 – August 10 with the exciting theme of India’s Riches: History, Culture, Diversity, & Democracy. Students will visit three areas of India that are geographically and culturally diverse, yet all very much represent India: New Delhi, Gujarat, and Kerala.

Indiaspora is now accepting applications for our 2019 cohort. Please find details below. For questions, please contact Gabrielle Trippe, our Philanthropy Initiatives Manager, at gabrielle@indiaspora.org.

July 21 – August 10, 2019: New Delhi, Gujarat, and Kerala
