About the Program

On 25th January 2018, the eve of Indian Republic Day, the honorable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi, in the presence of the heads of all 10 ASEAN countries, announced 1000 fellowships for ASEAN citizens to pursue the PhD program at an IIT of their choice. The program is exclusively for aspirants from ASEAN countries and is in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the warm and friendly ties between India and ASEAN.

In recognition of the deep and historical ties between India and ASEAN, India’s foremost technical education centers, the internationally renowned Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), welcome aspirants from ASEAN countries to apply for PhD fellowships. Applicants can apply online on the portal. Those selected get a chance to finish their PhD with funding at par with their Indian counterparts from the Government of India. The funding covers the entire cost of study and living expenses for up to 5 years of their PhD program.
