CSCS Library Fellowships
List of Library Fellows
CSCS offers up to five fellowships every year to undergraduate teachers
who wish to spend a month working in the library on independent
research projects. The Library Fellowships Programme provides undergraduate
teachers the opportunity to take time off their busy teaching and
administrative responsibilities to focus on research.
The Programme is envisaged as an extension into new areas of the
broad thrust of the Educational Initiatives Programme's undergraduate
and curricular initiatives. The EIP has sought to intervene in the
field of undergraduate education by building a long term interaction
and dialogue with faculty members.
The Library Fellowships Programme is a direct outcome of keen interest
shown by undergraduate faculty in the CSCS library. The programme
aims at sustained interaction between CSCS faculty and students
with visiting undergraduate faculty members and other researchers.
The primary focus of the programme
is undergraduate teachers. However, PhD students enrolled in smaller
and relatively underprivileged universities too are eligible for
Applications are invited from interested college teachers and other
researchers from any part of India who are interested in independent
research in the field of cultural studies/interdisciplinary research.
The fellowship will be offered for a period of about 30-40 days,
which may be broken up into two fortnights' work at CSCS any time
during the year, so as to enable researchers to work during their
vacations. During this period applicants will be expected to work
at the CSCS library.
At the end of the research period, fellows will be expected to submit
a report of their research findings at the Centre. At least one
fellowship every year is available for candidates who wish to design
undergraduate syllabi in their respective specialization. The amount
for fellowship available would be Rs. 5000 for teachers who are
residents of Bangalore and Rs. 10,000 for those from outside the
city. Those selected for the fellowship will also be given a two-year
membership to the CSCS Library.
