Study in India

FIU has an exchange agreement with Jain Vishwa Bharati University (JVBU) in Ladnun, Rajasthan, which enables FIU and other students to participate in their "Introducing Jainism Program," or to undertake semester-long directed research projects with assistance and support from JVBU faculty. The same agreement brings JVBU students to pursue graduate studies in Jain Studies and Religious Studies at FIU.
