JNIAS Fellowship Application Form

"Specialization in knowledge and work will have to continue, but it seems more essential than ever that a synthetic view of human life and man's adventure through the ages should be encouraged. This view will have to take into consideration the past and the present, and include in its scope all countries and peoples. In this way perhaps we might develop, in addition to our own national backgrounds and cultures, an appreciation of others and a capacity to understand and cooperate with the peoples of other countries….We might become, in Plato's words, `spectators of all time and all being', drawing sustenance from the rich treasures that humanity has accumulated, adding to them, and applying them in building for the future."
Jawaharlal Nehru: The Discovery of India

The Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Advanced Study is envisaged as :

A self-contained site of scholarly pursuits in an environment of intellectual fellowship

A source of academic enrichment for the university community


About us

The Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Advanced Studies (JNIAS) was set up nearly fifteen years ago and it is unique that for the first time in India, such an Institute has been incorporated as part of a public university. As the JNIAS completes over 15 years to expand its outreach and visibility and emerges as a distinct Institute at global level, around 200 scholars from all over the world have come to the Institute as Fellows. A list of the scholars and their research interests can be seen under 'Scholars Invited'.


The Fellows are selected by the JNIAS and are integrated into the academic community of the university. The JNIAS has also collaborated in organizing a number of workshops and seminars.


The current Director of The JNIAS is Professor Ajay Kumar Dubey.
