(a) Selected fellows must undertake to work whole time and will be debarred from private practice or taking up any other occupation or accepting any other fellowship award or post of any description during the tenure of the fellowship award of the Trust. The fellow will also not be allowed, except for very exceptional reasons, at the sole discretion of the Trust, to abandon the research work in the middle of the academic year as this defeats the very purpose for which the Trust awards fellowships. The applicant must give an undertaking to this effect in the application letter.

(c) Applicant must pay particular attention to the above requirements as sought in the online submission. As complete information as possible should be given regarding the proposed research under the various heads indicated in the submission and also full reference must be given as sought. The problem must be carefully selected and isolated so that it can be adequately dealt with during the period of the fellowship.  The scientific information so presented will help to determine whether or not the applicant should be called for an interview.
