Description

The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) of India and TWAS, the academy of sciences for the developing world, have instituted a number of fellowships for foreign scholars from developing countries who wish to pursue research leading towards PhD in newly emerging areas in science and technology for which facilities are available in the Laboratories/Institutes of the CSIR.

  1. TWAS-CSIR Postgraduate Fellowships are tenable in CSIR research laboratories and institutes in India for a maximum period of four years.
  2. Applicants may be registered for a PhD degree in their home country, or may enrol in a PhD course at any University in India.
  3. Eligible CSIR institutions: Information on CSIR laboratories and institutes can be obtained by following the links from the CSIR homepage (www.csir.res.in). Alternatively, a list of eligible institutes is available here: CSIR institutes  and here:  CSIR-Centres.doc .
  4. SANDWICH Fellowships (for those registered for a PhD in their home country): The Fellowship may be granted for a minimum period of 6 months and a maximum of 4 years.
  5. FULL-TIME Fellowships (for those not registered for a PhD): The Fellowship may be granted for an initial period of up to 12 months. Such Fellowships may then be extended for a further 3 years, subject to the student's performance and his/her registration for PhD at a university in India or their home country. CSIR will confirm any such extensions to both TWAS and the candidate.
