Research Awards

The objectives of the scheme are to provide opportunities to regularly appoint permanent teachers of universities/institutions to pursue research in their area(s) of specialisation for a period of two years without undertaking any research guidance. A provision for extension of tenure of Research Award has been made for one year only on the recommendation of the subject experts in exceptional cases. The total numbers of 100 slots are available under the scheme every alternate year.

In order to remain in touch with the latest developments in their respective areas of teaching and research, the awardees may take classes/teach in their place of work/institution of implementation of the Award, without any additional remuneration. This period of teaching is inclusive of the full tenure of the award.
