A Brief on Tagore National Fellowship

Tagore National Fellowship, also known as Tagore National Fellowship for Cultural Research, has been introduced in order to kindle the talented scholars/ students to join hands with others sharing the same interest. The objective of the fellowships is to rejuvenate and revitalize various institutions under Ministry of Culture.  The scheme will be open to both Indian Nationals and foreign citizens. The proportion of the foreigners will only be one third of the fellowships awarded every year.

What are the fellowship scopes?

The main idea of this fellowship is to encourage scholars with outstanding merit, to work on research projects that unravel their unexplored resources. The scholar can work in more than one institution, but will be attached to one main institution as nodal institution. The subject of research should be one that can be usually taken up with the nodal institution awarding fellowship. Still the fellow can be free to draw help and resources from other institutions as well. At the end of the project, the result must benefit the fellow and the institution. This benefits the institution and the student who works for the institution. The student explores to the extent of inquisitiveness, which anyway is the whole idea behind this fellowship.
