As higher education institutions and students continue to navigate the ongoing crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, and keeping in view the challenges faced by its graduating students, JGU has announced a new scholarship programme that aims to provide opportunities for selected graduating students of JGU to undertake a research immersion programme at JGU.
The Graduate Research Immersion Programme (GRIP) Scholarships, for the 2020 graduating batch of JGU students aims at providing an opportunity to 2020 graduating students of JGU to augment their research capabilities in order to support them in their overall career progression and transition into their higher education or professional careers.
The GRIP Scholarship Programme is a six-month programme, which is expected to commence from September 1, 2020 (subject to change and any alternate date will be notified). 100 GRIP Scholars will be selected through a competitive process from among JGU students graduating in 2020.
The programme will provide a unique opportunity to GRIP Scholars to work closely with our most experienced and highly qualified global faculty. GRIP Scholars will be provided with comprehensive support from the university to further develop their intellectual competencies, academic and professional capacities, and entrepreneurial skills.
During the programme, GRIP Scholars will benefit from one-on-one supervision and guidance from our highly qualified and senior faculty in the disciplines of law, management, international relations, public policy, liberal arts and humanities, and journalism. Scholars will also be encouraged to take active part in advancing JGU’s research programmes through the university’s 50+ research centres and three research and capacity building institutes. The programme will provide unique and wide-ranging opportunities for GRIP Scholars to interact with industry experts, practitioners, lawyers, judges, leading national and international academics and researchers, journalists, government officials, and institutional leaders who are regularly hosted at JGU as part of the University’s broad institutional agenda of advancing intellectual debates, discussions and collaboration across disciplinary areas and boundaries.
GRIP Scholars will also have the opportunity to access JGU’s Office of Career Services, and utilise the University’s global academic facilities and networks.
Apart from the scholarship, JGU will provide accommodation and other benefits and privileges to the GRIP Scholars for the duration of the programme. The selected GRIP Scholars will need to be on the University campus for the duration of the programme as this not an online scholarship programme. This is a one-off policy initiative applicable to JGU students graduating only in the year 2020 from any school or programme of JGU.
Further details regarding eligibility, selection process, deliverables, and terms and conditions of engagement, are included in the GRIP Scholarship Policy. Interested students may submit their letter of interest (not more than 500 words) along with their CV to the Human Resource department of JGU at firstname.lastname@example.org, latest by 15 June, 2020. The Deans of the Schools of JGU will take the lead in the selection process of the GRIP Scholars.
