Every year, several students interested in researching Kerala apply for a PhD in the social sciences. Many go about it, however, without adequate information, guidance, or perspective.

The four panelists will share their experience, knowledge, and understanding of how to apply for a PhD, including,

  •  Where to apply – India or abroad?
  •  How to send applications to the US and the UK;
  •  Opportunities for research funding; and – Drafting your statement of purpose and research proposal.
