Four BHU research scholars were awarded the Prime Minister’s Research Fellowship (PMRF) for the May 2022 cycle. PMRF grant seekers are chosen from a national, rigorous selection process conducted by our knowledgeable staff. The purpose of this grant is to attract the best talent in research with an aim to promote high-quality research for the general public.

The university has announced that four of its rising scholars have been selected for one of the most exclusive doctoral schemes in India. BHU also shared the names and departments for their students who have been selected for PMRF schemes for the May 2022 cycle.

This fellowship is available to select research scholars. With the fellowship, they’ll get Rs 70,000 per month for the first two years, followed by Rs 75,000 per month for the third year and Rs 80,000 per month for the last three years. In addition to this, a research contingency grant of Rs 2 lakh will be granted each year during their fellowship period.

The university’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Sudhir K. Jain, congratulated scholars for the award of a PMRF fellowship. Acknowledging that the number of selections from this university will likely see an uptick for next year given the changes made to the PhD course and excellent quality of research and researchers the university has, he expressed confidence in this institution continuing on to have even more momentous endeavors in future.

Dr. Mousumi Mutsuddi, the coordinator for the scheme in BHU, said, “We are very happy that our students were awarded this prestigious fellowship award. We hope to see more nominations for this prestigious award in the next cycle.”
