Intent on becoming a dynamic centre of Gandhian research and allied activities, a Residential Research Fellowship Program is being initiated to coincide with the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, and will be expanded during the next 3-5 years.

The GRF, with its comprehensive library and archival collections, complemented by excellent board and lodging facilities, provides an environment congenial for conducting intensive applied research by an annually selected team of 5 national and international scholars, activists, social-workers, and public figures, during a residential fellowship extending from three to six months (with the possibility of further extension and continuation in subsequent years).

Thrust Areas of Applied Research

The proposed Thrust Areas of Applied Research are as follows:

  • To achieve: Rural regeneration, economic sustainability, skill development, employment creation
  • To minimise: Social-economic inequalities and gender imbalance
  • To contribute towards: Caste and communal harmony
  • To facilitate: Educational innovation
  • To promote: Health and nutrition revitalisation
  • To tackle: Environmental challenges
  • To strengthen: Nonviolent conflict resolutions in India and globally.
