LONDON: The University of Cambridge has instituted three visiting fellowships for outstanding Indian graduates in memory of its alumnus and former Karnatak University vice-chancellor Dr D C Pavate.
The fellowships, open to Indian citizens under the age of 45, will be held at the Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.
The Dr D C Pavate Fellowships are for a four-month period of study each at Judge Business School, the Centre for International Studies and either the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) or the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy.
The annual fellowships have been instituted under an agreement between the Dr D C Pavate Foundation, Karnatak University in Dharwad, India and Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.
The fellowships, to be started from next year, can be availed by PhD holders or those having first class Masters Degree or its equivalent, the university said.
The visiting fellow appointed to the Centre of International Studies will be selected after an all-India competition, it said.
The Fellowship at the Centre of International Studies will be effective from January 2010. Candidates with a good academic record in the areas of History, Political Science, International Economics, International Law or Military Affairs will be considered.
