The student is required to register on ICMR website ONLINE by 10th January 2014, submit the application form and proposal online latest by 25th January 2014 which will be evaluated by the Council.

Results will be announced in March-April 2014 and list of selected students displayed on the website. If selected, the student is expected to complete the project in any two given months between April and September 2014 and submit the report before the last date of submission i.e. 15th October, 2014.

The student will be awarded stipend and certificate only if his/her report is approved.

The value of the studentship will be Rs. 5,000/- per month for 2 months’ duration (Rs.10,000/- only) and is meant to be a stipend for the student. Cost of research must be borne by Medical College/ Institution where research is carried out.
