In September 2019, India officially launched an initiative to offer up to 1,000 integrated PhD Fellowships for ASEAN students at its 23 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

The fellowship programme will provide 250 scholarships this year, 300 in 2020 and 450 in 2021. The funding will cover the entire cost of study and living expenses for up to five years of a PhD programme. The first batch of the ASEAN students will be admitted in January 2020.

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi has been designated as the coordinating IIT for the fellowship programme. It has developed a web portal
(http://asean.iitd.ac.in) to administer the application and admission process.  https://ecampus.iitd.ac.in/ASEAN/login

Interested students from ASEAN countries are advised to log in to the portal to apply for PhD programmes of their choice at various IITs in India.

The first batch of the ASEAN students will be admitted in January 2020. Admissions under the programme will be arranged over three academic years i.e. 2019-2020, 2020-2021 and 2021-2022. The Ministry of Human Resources and Development (MHRD), Government of India, will provide scholarships to ASEAN students at par with Indian PhD scholars, along with a yearly research grant, as applicable.
