The Indian Council for Social Science Research (ICSSR) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) invite applications from established scholars for funded academic visits of 1-3 months (and in exceptional cases a minimum of 2 weeks) to recognized research organisations (ROs), including universities and research institutes, in either country to undertake clearly specified research collaborations between themselves and their own research centre and research centres in the alternate country (either India or the Netherlands).
The purpose of this scheme is to strengthen the quality and potential of research in both countries by building greater research interaction. This scheme is for staff with an academic or research appointment, up to senior professors.
The Councils are particularly interested in applicants about to make major contributions in their research area. In this second round of exchange awards, the Councils are concerned to encourage applicants who have established, begun to establish, or are on the verge of establishing, international recognition in their research field. Early career and female researchers are especially invited to submit a proposal.
In case of an employed scholar his/her salary will be protected.
In addition, a contingency grant of Rs.12,000/- per annum will also be paid. Duration of a salary-protected fellowship will, in no case, be more than two years.
Only short listed candidates will be called for interview. Applicants not in receipt of call letters NEED not correspond unnecessarily.
The names of short listed candidates as well as the dates of interview will be put on our website: www.icssr.org
The Council reserves the right to reject any application without assigning any reason. The Council is also not responsible for any postal loss/delays in communications.
Completed application forms must be sent to:
