Raman Research Institute (RRI) Bangalore, a premier research institution for advanced research provides PhD Scholarship for motivated and qualified Indian students for pursuing research studies in Chemistry and Physics subjects. Research scholars should undergo an intensive course work during the first year and after successful completion of the course work and other requirements for confirmation of the candidature, they will be registered for a PhD degree with the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. 

Research areas : Astronomy and Astrophysics (Cosmology and Galaxy Formation, Normal and Active Galaxies, Clusters of Galaxies, The Galaxy & the Interstellar Medium, The Intergalactic Medium, Neutron Stars, Pulsars and X-ray Binaries and Signal Processing in Astronomy); Chemistry (Synthesis and Study of Liquid Crystals and Nanomaterials and Soft Matter Chemistry); Light and Matter Physics (Bose Einstein Condensation, Laser Cooling & Trapping of Atoms, Ultra-cold Molecules, Propagation of Light in Random Media, Quantum Optics, Nonlinear Optics, Ultrafast Phenomena, Intense Laser Field Interactions, Quantum Information and Computation and Fundamental tests of Quantum Mechanics); Soft Condensed Matter (Liquid Crystals, Amphiphilic Systems, Colloids, Nanomaterials, Surface Science, Granular Materials and Experimental Biological Physics) and Theoretical Physics (Condensed Matter & Statistical Physics, Classical & Quantum Gravity, Gravitational Waves, Physics in Biology and Differential Geometry in Physics).


Scholarship is awarded for a maximum of four years and provides 23 scholarship for Physics and 2 for Chemistry subject.

The scholarship will be an amount of Rs.25,000/-per month for the first two years and Rs. 28,000/- thereafter for the next three years, subject to satisfactory progress. An amount of Rs.5,000/- per annum will also be paid to the students for four years as a book grant.
