UGC NET raises scholarship amount for GATE Qualified candidates

Last Updated - January 23, 2017

In a recent circular, University Grant Commission announced a hike in the basic scholarship and fellowship amount to encourage the research scholars. The Revised rate would be applicable from December 1, 2017. The PG scholarships will be raised from Rs 8000 to Rs 12,400 per month for graduate aptitude test in engineering (GATE) qualified students.

The reviewed rate will be applicable to scholarships provided by UGC but not to the fellows who get scholarships under the Rajiv Gandhi National Fellowship (RGNF) - meant for students belonging to the Scheduled Caste and Schedule Tribes - and the Maulana Azad National Fellowship (MANF) meant for students belonging to minority community.

For several years, there has been demand from research fellows to increase the amount of fellowship. Under various schemes, the fellowship has been decided to increase by about 55%. The rate of fellowship of JRF and SRF will be on par with the UGC fellowship of Science and technology students as amended from time to time. Here is the list of Fellowship amount and scholarship offered for various fellowships.
