About the program

This highly competitive program will award up to four named fellowships. The fellowship recipient will be supported for a maximum period of four years with a monthly fellowship, a contingency grant for expenses like books, stationery etc and a travel grant for attending conferences.

Each fellowship recipient will be assigned a Google Sponsor who will mentor the PhD fellow over the research period. Engagement with the Google Sponsor will include discussions on research direction, research progress updates etc.
