The University has signed an MoU with the Yale Centre for International and Area Studies (Yale University), USA, to administer the programme of Yale University “Fox International Fellowship” in JNU.
As per the agreement, two Fox International fellows from Yale will spend a year at JNU and two fellows from JNU will spend a year at Yale and the students of JNU will be fully funded by Yale University. The Committee shall recommend of M.Phil/Ph.D students to be sent to Yale University in order to conduct research in any of the following fields: Economics, Finance, Political Science. International Relations, Law and Contemporary History. Although the Committee shall decide regarding selection of students of the University for the year 2013-14, the Fox International Fellowship will be awarded by the Yale University for the year 2014-15. The final selection will be done by a committee at Yale.
The students eligible for the year 2013-14 will be only those who have joined M.Phil/Ph.D or Direct Ph.D programme in the Monsoon Semester of academic year 2012-13 or earlier.
