GRAAM Scholar Program (GSP)


For a student/trainee, internship is meant to learn as well as gain work experience while working in a relevant organization. Our past experiences with students says that in most of the cases they are engaged with work where learning is minimal. Hence, GRAAM designed a unique concept of one month long ‘scholar program’ where students will gain practical experience of conducting a research/policy study with the field partners under the mentorship of GRAAM, and also publishing their work (if selected) in the annual journal of the organization. Thus, the program has come over with a threefold objective:


* For intern: to provide a combined objective of providing a true grassroots experience blended with a participatory research model to the young scholars. Also, possibility of having a publication disseminated through GRAAM’s bulletin and annual publication.


* For Grassroots organization: to support in documenting their work and helping them to deep routing their understanding about the issues of their community.


* For GRAAM: the pilot studies will provide evidences from grassroots to take forward larger studies and evidence based advocacy.


The program with GRAAM will not only help scholar to gain an experience of working with a multidisciplinary team of GRAAM but also to work in field with local partners, and publish their study.
