About Gurukul Fellowship

The Members of the Committee deliberated on the issue in details and thereafter made following recommendations for implementation of the above said schemes:

a) The ICHR Gurukul Fellowship will be keeping in with our ancient traditional knowledge and thus will be consisted of two components: an eminent renowned scholar in Indian history and culture with an outstanding experience of excellence in the subject around 70 years of age, who would be called ‘Guru’ and his disciple, who would be named as disciple of the former. The disciple would be a meritorious young scholar who has obtained Ph.D or equivalent from a recognised University or has published work of equivalent merit to his credit.

b) The Guru would be selected by a Search-cum-Selection Committee constituted by the Chairman, ICHR. He would suggest a panel of three young scholars, who fully meet with the educational and experience requirements, and would send this panel along with copies of all the necessary supporting documents to the Member Secretary
