Shortlisting and interviews of Scholars candidates underway

Takshashila is currently in the process of shortlisting and interviewing candidates for the second round of the Scholars programme. 34 applications were received for the limited scholarships available for doing cutting edge part-time policy research.

The Scholars programme creates a platform for young people from diverse backgrounds to undertake quality research in public policy relevant to India’s national interest. The scholarship award is for a duration of 6-months, for undertaking independent research projects culminating in policy briefs.

Final selections will be made this month and start their research from August 2013.
