About Jawaharlal Nehru Fellowships

PREAMBLE

Jawaharlal Nehru was one of those rare men in human history who can be said to have advanced the cause of civilization through the medium of their own lives. Any scheme to honor his memory must take into account his multifaceted personality and his many splendored achievements. His eternal passion for the enlargement of the frontiers of knowledge and enrichment of the human mind are well-known. To commemorate his name, the Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Fund in 1968 instituted Jawaharlal Nehru Fellowships dedicated to the encouragement, support and patronage of higher learning and of free intellectual inquiry. These seek to provide an opportunity to exceptionally talented persons to devote themselves with freedom to their creative work for a period of two years.

 

ELIGIBILITY

 

The Fellowships are open to scholars in every discipline – the sciences as well as the humanities – and also to categories of people not normally covered by existing schemes such as writers, journalists, artists and civil servants – for undertaking not only projects of highly sophisticated and technical subjects but also for study in depth of current problems relevant to the India of today. The only criterion is that they should possess proven capacity for outstanding work and a real desire to pursue a creative project, exploring new possibilities in their chosen field. As Jawaharlal Nehru said, “Man today, as never before in human history, has to live with change as a permanent partner in his activities and his Institutions.” This applies even to the most brilliant scholars, who frequently need periods which they can devote entirely to the enrichment of their intellectual capital, particularly in view of the speed with which every discipline is developing in this nuclear age. While it has not been considered desirable to lay down any age-restrictions, efforts are made to ensure that an adequate number of Fellows are in their forties or fifties so that the Fellowships are followed by a long period of creativity, which would be of benefit to the country. The Fellowships are open to Indian citizens and the Fellows have complete freedom to work at places of their choice with in India.

 

SELECTION

 

The Jawaharlal Nehru Fellows are chosen by a Selection Committee consisting of distinguished persons in different fields of human Endeavor. The Selection Committee strives to maintain the highest standards of excellence and the widest possible spectrum of creative talent in the Fellowships.

The Fellowship is tenable for two years and carries a monthly stipend of Rs. 1,00,000/-, (one lakh) which is exempt from Income Tax u/s 10(17A) of the Income Tax Act, 1961. In addition, actual expenses on secretarial assistance, traveling and other contingencies are met by the Fund subject to a ceiling of Rs. 75,000/- per annum.
