JC BOSE National Fellowship

Department of Science & Technology


Nominations are invited for the  JC Bose National Fellowships,  newly instituted by the Government of India. The fellowship is meant to recognize active scientists and engineers for their outstanding performance and contributions. The Department  of  Science  &  Technology  will  administer  this  scheme.  The  fellowships  are  scientist–specific  and  very selective.


All areas of science (in the broadest terms) will be covered by this fellowship.


i)          The fellowship is open to Indian Nationals residing in India who are below the age of 60 years.
ii)          The applicant should possess a higher degree  or equivalent: namely Ph.D. in Science/Engineering, Masters in Engineering  or  Technology/MD  in  Medicine,  etc.  and  must  have carried out several  years of work in the specific area.
iii)         These Fellowships are meant for those who have  a  proven track–record as evident from their research publications and recognitions.
iv)         The candidate must have a regular position in an Institute /Organization and should be engaged in research. If he /she is availing any other fellowship, he/she will have to opt for only one of the fellowships.


The duration of the fellowship will be initially for five years.


     The value of the fellowship will be Rs. 20,000 per month in addition to regular income.

     In addition, each Fellow will receive a contingency of Rs. 5.00 lakh per annum for conferences and other expenses.

     The JC Bose National Fellows would be eligible for regular research  grants through the extramural  funding schemes of various S&T agencies of the Government of India.


     The Institution in which the candidate is working would provide the necessary R&D, administrative and basic infrastructural support for research.

     The candidate will continue to work at the place of his employment.

     The availability of JC Bose Fellowships will be advertised by various academic and research Institutions on their websites  in  order  to  receive  applications  from  the  interested  scientists  and  engineers.  The  Institutions  will subsequently submit their recommended nominations to  the Department of Science & Technology. Institutions may consider setting up appropriate mechanisms to scrutinize and recommend the nominations.

     Individual scientists and engineers can also approach the institutions for forwarding their nominations to DST for the Fellowship.
     Selection of JC Bose Fellows will be made periodically by an empowered Search-cum-Selection Committee specially appointed for the purpose.
     The nominations of scientists and technologists by the Institutions would be received throughout the year. There is, thus, no last date for this Scheme.
