Banaras Hindu University (BHU) today launched a new scheme to provide support to international research scholars. The scheme is aimed at facilitating and promoting excellence in research as well as financial support to international PhD scholars who do not have any other fellowship.

International scholars will receive a credit incentive of Rs 40,000 under the new programme. The user fees for the equipment at BHU that is used for research can be covered by this credit. A extra credit of Rs 30,000 would be given if the research scholar is the first author in a Q1 or Q2 journal.

The scheme launched under IoE initiative of the Government of India will also offer financial support of Rs 8,000 per month to the international PhD students at BHU, who don’t have any other fellowship. 

A contingency similar to the BHU-UGC non-NET Fellowship will also be given to them. Similar to the research incentive provided to BHU-Not NET Fellowship, foreign scholars who publish papers in Q1 or Q2 journals are entitled to receive an additional one-time incentive of Rs. 84,000. Currently, 57 of these students will benefit from the monthly fellowship programme.
