Whom is the scholarship for?

 

The scholarship is intended to support pursuit of research leading to the PhD degree in Mathematics / Applied Mathematics. To qualify for it, one must satisfy both these conditions:

 

• qualify in the test and the subsequent interview;

 

• enrol by January 2022 (if not already enrolled) in a recognised PhD programme in Mathematics / Applied Mathematics in a university or institution in India.

 

Whom is the test for?

 

Anyone who fits at least one of the following three descriptions may apply:

 

• enrolled in a full time PhD programme in Mathematics / Applied Mathematics in a recognised university or institution in India;

• aspiring to enroll in such a programme by January 2022;

• aspiring for selection in the next round of recruitment for the Integrated PhD programme in Mathematics of an institution that receives from NBHM the test scores for screening for admission to that programme (such as the seven mentioned above).

 

Details of the scholarship ?

 

The scholarship is initially granted for a term of four years, but needs to be renewed every year, the renewal being subject to satisfactory progress as judged by NBHM. It is extendable to a fifth year at NBHM’s discretion. It consists of a monthly stipend and a yearly contingency grant, the rates of which are revised from time to time. The current rates are as follows: monthly stipend |31,000/- for the first two years, to be increased, based upon the recommendation of the committee appointed by the scholar’s institution to monitor the scholar’s progress, to |35,000/- for the subsequent years; yearly contingency grant |40,000/-. In addition, house rent allowance (HRA) is payable as per central government norms.

 

A precondition for tenability of the scholarship is that throughout its term the candidate must be enrolled in a recognised full time PhD programme in Mathematics / Applied Mathematics in India. This means that the candidate must get enrolled in such a programme by January 20224 (if not already enrolled) and such enrolment must continue for the entire duration of the scholarship. If the enrolment should cease for any reason, the scholarship will also cease at the same time. The scholarship will be paid only through the scholar’s institution.

 

Selection procedure for the scholarship

 

Candidates shall be shortlisted for an interview based on their performance in the test. Final selection for the scholarship shall primarily be on the basis of performance in the test and the subsequent interview, although the selection committee may take into account other aspects of the candidate’s academic track record.
