What is the ICMR-JRF Examination?

The ICMR is conducting a nationwide examination for eligible applicants to award junior research scholarships. This award will be awarded solely based on merit. The award will be given to successful applicants. It will depend on the placements they find in a medical institution/hospital/university/national laboratory/institution of higher education and research, if applicable. In addition, candidates selected through the JRF ICMR exam will receive scholarships from the ICMR to complete their PhD.

Candidates selected for the ICMR JRF program can enrol in the doctoral program of any UGC/MCI recognized university. However, the JRF program will have no connection to the doctoral program. The scholarship awarded to candidates is valid for 6 months.
