Tata Fellowships in Folklore
National Folklore Support Centre’s Tata Fellowships in Folklore are meant for M.Phil level students of participating Universities/colleges.

Each fellowship will carry an award of Rs.9000/- per month for the scholar and another Rs.9000/- per month for the community elder or artist. In addition to the monthly award each fellowship carries a contingency of Rs.50,000/‐ per annum to cover travel and documentation expenses.
