Scholars and researchers conduct research on various topics related to their fields. Research is a never-ending process. It continues almost all the time from the beginning of sapiens. Research on something at present time is quite easier compared to old times, in terms of resources and techniques or funds. Despite this, funding in the research field is not always easy.
Researchers need funds for exploring resources, techniques, data, or other activities related to the research. Lack of funds or finances causes delays in research activities on various levels. Also one of the reasons that caused a lack of motivation in research fellows doing research or obtaining practical research subjects in the field of research.
Get Academic and Research Developments updates:
To boost motivation in research personnel from all fields and support academic research activities, the government stands out and starts providing funds for aspiring researchers from all fields. This supports scholars and other individuals who wanted to do research but lack funds for continuing their research in their respective areas.
Stay Connected to other Experts in Your Field:
For young researchers govt. Organizes a national test called the national eligibility test for junior research fellows (Net JRF) to give funds and fellowships in their desired research fields. One can obtain a research fellowship or funds through this test and begin their research journey.
