Public Policy Scholars

  • The Hindu Centre will host on a rotational basis short-term scholars to work on projects for a period of 12 to 16 weeks that will examine issues of more immediacy on the national agenda. Public policy practitioners and bureaucrats would be strong candidates for such scholarships.

    Upon completion of the projects, the Public Policy Scholars are expected to produce Papers/Reports containing conclusions or findings based on original explorations of current political or policy issues. The Centre places a premium on studies that will offer fresh perspectives on long-standing challenges or explore new and hitherto unexplored issues on the public agenda, reflecting the changing contours of the wider Indian public discourse. The conclusions of such explorations should add up to original policy approaches to the issues under study.

  • Applications for the fourth round of Public Policy Scholars are now closed

    • The Hindu is an astounding and vibrant newspaper, its editorials and news are wonderful. I hope this new initiative of The Hindu will enlighten us and help to find a solution to the political as well as bureaucratic crisis our country is facing today. I would suggest a new step called 'Ask an Expert', so that we can ask our questions to the social researchers of the Centre and have discussions.

    • The Hindu - Its again a feather in the crown! I really vow at the development,varsity and its unbeatable position in the media world as it has all class people starting from child to upsc aspirants HINDU has always been a light house.Thanks for a good initiative that too in the research field and that too not only in the Politics but also public policy.We are greatly looking forward for the first publication. Many times i struggle a lot in understanding the meaning because of the standard. Like this way i wish The Hindu should not lean to any side and be the public paper till the media exists... My all the very best wishes.. Go ahead ... be the change....
