The National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) invites applications for the grant of scholarships to students for pursuing studies leading to a masters degree in mathematics.

Eligibility:

 

Only candidates belonging to one of the following categories are eligible (even to appear for the written test):

 

• Students who have either completed or expect to complete by end of July 2019 all requirements for a recognized B.A. / B.Sc. degree in mathematics, with cumulative marks 60% or more (or equivalent).

 

• Students who have either completed or expect to complete by end of July 2019 all requirements for a recognized B.A.(Hons.) / B.Sc.(Hons.) degree in mathematics, with cumulative marks 50% or more (or equivalent).

 

• Students who have either completed or expect to complete by end of July 2019 three or four years of a recognized five-year integrated masters programme in mathematics, with cumulative marks 60% or more (or equivalent).

 

Clarification

 

Students who have either completed or expect to complete by end of July 2019 one year of a recognized two year programme leading to a M.A. / M.Sc. degree in Mathematics are eligible to apply, provided that both the following conditions are satisfied:

 

• the cumulative marks in the first year of the programme is 60% or more (or equivalent).

• the cumulative marks in the undergraduate degree pre-requisite to the masters programme is 60% or more (or equivalent); the cumulative marks need only be 50% or more (or equivalent) if the undergraduate degree is an Honours programme.

The Scholarship

 

Successful candidates will receive a scholarship of Rs. 6,000/- (Rupees six thousand only) per month, during the two year period of the post-graduate programme (or the final two years of the five-year integrated masters program). The scholarships are sanctioned for one year at a time and are renewable at the end of the year, subject to satisfactory progress. Students selected for the award of the scholarship when in the final year of the M.A. / M.Sc. or five-year integrated masters program will receive their scholarship for only one year.

 

To avail of the scholarship, a student must be enrolled in a recognized post-graduate (including integrated five-year masters) programme in mathematics in India. The scholarship will be disbursed through the student’s institution.

 

Selection Procedure

 

Selection will be on the basis of a written test followed by an interview. Candidates will be short-listed for the interview based on the performance in the written test.

 

The written test is scheduled for Saturday, 19th October 2019. Its duration will be 150 (one hundred and fifty) minutes. It will involve questions requiring short answers (including multiple choice, possibly with negative marking as indicated), primarily in the areas of analysis and algebra, but also in other areas of mathematics covered in undergraduate mathematics programmes. Question papers from previous years along with the keys are available from the NBHM website and also at https://www.imsc.res.in/nbhm model questions/. These are however only indicative. The pattern and difficulty of the written test are subject to change without any notice whatsoever.

 

The written test will be conducted at the following centres (divided into zones as indicated):
