The Hindu Centre Public Policy Scholars and Annual Fellows

The Hindu Centre
Applications are now open for Public Policy Scholars and Annual Fellows.
Annual Fellows
The Hindu Centre offers two or three annual fellowships to distinguished policy practitioners, scholars and public intellectuals of established reputation to undertake research on issues relating to political institutions, processes and specific aspects of the working of India's parliamentary democracy. The salience and relevance of the topics will be a top priority in the allocation of fellowships.
Since a major goal of The Hindu Centre is to revisit key Constitutional concepts and to examine the continued validity of the post-Independence set of political values in order to assess their utility in the present context, research that significantly advances our understanding in this regard will be given priority. We will also welcome studies of political philosophy and concepts that can help illuminate some of the challenges facing Indian democracy today, such as the definition of Indian nationalism, ensuring democratic rights, addressing diversity, pluralism and regional aspirations.
The Fellows who are selected will be allotted cubicles at the Centre's office in Chennai and will have access to library and scholarly facilities including the archives of The Hindu. The Fellows will also receive fixed remunerations on a monthly basis. The Centre expects that upon completion of the annual fellowship, the Fellow will produce a monograph that will offer original scholarship or contribute significantly to the body of knowledge on the particular subject of study.
Public Policy Scholars
The Hindu Centre will host on a rotational basis short-term scholars to work on projects for a period of 12 to 16 weeks that will examine issues of more immediacy on the national agenda. Public policy practitioners and bureaucrats would be strong candidates for such scholarships.
Research proposals that have greater topicality and salience to the current public discourse will be accorded a higher priority in the selection process.
Upon completion of the projects, the Public Policy Scholars are expected to produce Working Papers containing conclusions or findings based on original explorations of current political or policy issues. The Centre places a premium on studies that will offer fresh perspectives on long-standing challenges or explore new and hitherto unexplored issues on the public agenda, reflecting the changing contours of the wider Indian public discourse.
The conclusions of such explorations should add up to original policy approaches to the issues under study. The Scholars will be paid remuneration for the duration of their studies and will be provided with work stations at the Centre's office in Chennai.
