Nature of Assistance available under the Scheme   

UGC Rajiv Gandhi National fellowship is initially for two years under the RGNF Scheme. Before expiry of this period, the work of the Fellow will be evaluated by a Committee of three members comprising of Head of the Department, Supervisor and one outside subject expert to be constituted by the concerned Department of the / University / Institution / College. If the research work is found satisfactory, his / her tenure will be extended further for a period of three years under the enhanced emoluments of the Rajiv Gandhi National Senior Research Fellowship ( RGNSRF ).

The recommendation of the Committee shall be submitted to the UGC for upgradation to the level of RGNSRF. The work done and the time spent on UGC Rajiv Gandhi National scholarships or fellowships of any agency other than the UGC will not be taken into account while considering the proposals for enhancement in the value of  UGC Rajiv Gandhi National fellowship.

UGC Rajiv Gandhi National fellowship may be withdrawn if the work is not considered satisfactory or the candidate fails in any of the examinations related to Ph.D. In case the work for the first two years is not found satisfactory, an additional year will be given to him / her for improvement.

In such cases work will be evaluated again before third year of the tenure, and if improvement is found, the Fellow will get two more years under the RGNSRF.
