Phil. and Ph.D.

III. Implementing agency:

UGC is the nodal agency for implementing the scheme. UGC notifies the scheme by releasing suitable advertisements in the Press.

IV. Eligibility:

Any student belonging to Scheduled Caste category who has been admitted to M.Phil./PhD degree in a University or academic institution by completing the required formalities for admission at that University or academic Institution is eligible for the award of fellowship subject to provision of the Scheme as per the advertisement of UGC.
