But what is it and who can apply for it?

What is Quad Fellowship Programme

Quad Fellowship programme is an academic endeavor under which the brightest of the minds from the four QUAD countries – USA, India, Japan and Australia would come together. The aim is to create a network of experts ‘committed to advancing innovation & collaboration across sectors’. The programme would give those selected the chance to pursue Masters and Doctoral degree in STEM courses from the top universities in the USA. It is essentially a scholarship programme that would fund 100 students every year. 25 students from each of the four countries would get this scholarship. As per preliminary information, each fellow would get $50,000 onetime financial award to cover the tuition and research fees and expenses. Apart from this, the fellows would also be eligible up to $25,000 funding to cover other costs. More details are awaited and would be released soon.

Students who have completed or would complete their graduation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) by August 2023 are eligible to apply. Since the fellowship aims at bringing the best minds from the world together, an excellent academic record would be required. Students who have completed their Masters are also eligible to apply for Research Based programs.
