Homi Bhabha Fellowship

Description

While the system of selection is flexible, applications and requests for the Councils consideration normally require the recommendation and support of a recognised institution or of a person of eminence in the field concerned. The Council directly, or through it committees, will carry out the process of screening, interviewing and testing of those who seek the high distinction of a Homi Bhabha Fellowship. Fellows are expected to come from the class of persons who, on completion of their institutional or academic training, have spent some time in the successful practice of their special activity. As a rule, therefore, these Fellowships are not available as scholarships for further scholastic study, e.g. towards a Ph.D. or for training as such. They are intended to be grants to competent young persons to carry out projects at an advanced level which would enable them to achieve further progress in their special fields of interest. Fellows may work either by themselves or in an institution as may be appropriate and suitable. The nature and tenure of the award vary in accordance with the requirements of each case. The amount of the Fellowship is Rs.50,000/- per month (tax free); those who wish to draw their full pay and allowances from the parent Institute, the Council will give a supplementary grant of Rs.25,000/- per month (tax free) during the term of the Homi Bhabha Fellowship; in addition, funds are provided wherever necessary, for essential travel, books and other contingencies. The period of the Fellowship will be between one and two years. Homi Bhabha Fellows include scientist, engineers, agronomists, architects, educationists, historians, social scientists, writers, artists and administrators, and, in fact are drawn from all fields of human endeavour.
