Himalayan Research Fellowship Scheme

Another integrate part of the National Mission on Himalayan Studies (NMHS) covers creation of Himalayan Research Fellowships in various universities/ Institutions all across the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR). The aim is to create a cadre of young and trained Himalayan environmental managers, ecologists and socio-economists and thus help generating information on physical, biological, management and social aspects of Himalayan environment and development. This Himalayan Research Fellowship scheme is constituted at two levels: (1) NMHS-Himalayan Research Associate (NM-HRA) and (2) NMHS-Himalayan Junior Research Fellow (NM-HJRF). Following MoEF&CC guidelines and other provisions as per GFR and NMHS-PMu, these fellowships will be operated through different universities and institutions in IHR, including GBPIHED and its Regional units. To support this, establishment of Himalayan Chairs engaging eminent scientists and academicians in different universities and institutions, including GBPIHED, has also been made instrumental under the NMHS.

Fellowship Approved for Financial Year 2015-16
