AIMS Life Members will be delighted to know that, with a view to bridge the whopping gap, at least to some extent, between the enormous demand for, and supply of, bright management faculty in India, the Association of Indian Management Schools (AIMS) (www: aims.org.in), a professional non-profit making networking body of B-Schools in India and the Jindal Global Business School (JGBS) (https: jgu.edu.in), which offers a multi-disciplinary business education to foster excellence through industry partnerships and foreign collaborations – have come together to offer a Doctoral Fellowship up to five (5) deserving management faculty of Member Institutions of AIMS.

AIMS will cover:
A monthly scholarship/stipend of Rs. 25,000 payables directly to the Ph D Scholar. An yearly contingency grant of Rs. 10,000/- will also be paid to each Scholar.

The institution should grant ‘study leave’ for a period of three years to the scholar, to facilitate full time pursuit of the doctoral program, giving the option to the scholar to return to the institution after completion of his Ph.D.
Candidates with MBA/PGDM/M.Tech./Masters in Arts & Sciences (with 60% of marks in relevant discipline) are eligible to apply; preference will be given to scholars with teaching experience in management.

At least two papers – one in the second year and the other in the third year — should be published by a Scholar in the AIMS Journal of Management. Otherwise, the fellowship will be discontinued.
The scholarship is available initially for a period of three years, extendable by one more year depending on the necessity and starts from the academic year 2017-18 itself. The last date for application is 10th August 2017
