To get this stipend, you will have to pass the JRF cutoff in the UCG NET exam. You can apply for this exam after completing your postgraduate studies in any subject. With JRF, you can enroll for a Ph.D. at top universities such as BHU. This Ph.D. will help you become a professor. However, you can pursue a Ph.D. without a JRF, but this stipend will help you cover the research costs. Also, it acts as an added advantage to get into a prestigious university under a reputed guide.
