Regardless of your previous applications to the India Alliance, all applicants have to make a preliminary application to every competition.
If you are not short-listed at the preliminary application stage, you may apply to the same scheme, subject to meeting the eligibility criteria for the scheme.
Normally, resubmission after consideration of a Full application is not permitted in any scheme. If the Full application has been reviewed by the India Alliance’s Selection Committee, and it was unsuccessful at either the short-listing or interview stage, the applicant may not re-apply to the same scheme. This implies that applicants would have only one opportunity to compete per scheme, once they are into the full application stage. Therefore, it is very important for applicants to carefully consider the timing of their application.
This scheme supports excellent scientists who wish to undertake high-quality research and to establish themselves as independent researchers in an academic institution in India.
To complete a preliminary application use our online system, IASys. Refer to the IASys userguide for guidance on completing the application form and the submission process. Please ensure that the form is submitted by the published deadline.
Your preliminary application is assessed and If successful, you will be invited to submit a full application.
Your full application will be peer reviewed and considered by the appropriate Selection Committee and, if successful, you will be shortlisted for interview.
Short-listed candidates will be notified two weeks before the interview date.
Applicants are not permitted to apply to multiple Fellowship schemes within the India Alliance in parallel. Only one application to one scheme will be entertained, at a time.
The Fellowship must be started within one year from the point at which the decision has been communicated, typically a week after the interview.
Information regarding the various roles on the application can be found here.
Please find overview of the application process and associated timelines here. Note: the timelines are to aid applicants to plan their application appropriately. India Alliance reserves the right to modify competition timelines for operational convenience.
