Hear from last year's scholars
"As I approach the end of the third year of my PhD, I offer my most sincere gratitude to the Shapoorji Pallonji Scholarships for helping enable this wonderful journey. My PhD thesis Imagination and Meaning in the Zoroastrian Yašts is progressing very well. The third year of my PhD has been rich and productive, and a majority of the writing that shall be shaped into my final thesis has been completed. I shall use the fourth year of my PhD to finesse and finalise my thesis, and I am on schedule to submit it for examination on 15 July 2024."
"I was grew up in Bombay (Mumbai), to a working-class Parsi Zoroastrian family where the tenets of our religion – Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds, were deeply embedded into my personality due to the rigorous efforts of my parents, and later on my teachers. It is no exaggeration to state that I simply would not have been able to attend SOAS if it was not for the Shapoorji Pallonji Scholarship - without the scholarship there would be no MA for me. It gave me the opportunity that I had been working towards for a very long time to fully focus on my studies during the entirety of the year."
