      Unfortunately, there is no fellowship for MPhil and PhD candidates in any State Universities from UGC or UGC sponsored schemes. If you have qualified NET in June 2019 or Dec 2019 and belong to OBC category then you have a chance to apply for NFOBC scheme of UGC. Similarly, You can also apply for SC, ST and PwD categories. For details you can visit UGC Site

    1. Fellowships have two categories, one is provided by central universities and second one is provided by either UGC (UGCNET JRF) or the Ministry related to OBC, SC, ST, Minorities and PwD. There is also an ICSSR fellowship but only for Social Sciences.

      You must clear UGC NET JRF to avail the fellowship or qualify NET to apply for other fellowships like NFOBC, NFSC, NFST, NFPwD, MANF, etc.
