The programme aims to support students in South Asian countries planning to pursue their postgraduate, M. Phil and PhD programmes in the fields of Governance, Security and Justice.
In the first round, five students across South Asia were selected, and in the second round further 10 students were selected. All of them are pursuing their Masters’ and PhD degrees in their respective countries. The programme supports fellows by providing them a monthly stipend and tuition fee.
