Amrit Foundation of India aims to further the development and wellbeing of all Indians so that they may individually and collectively reach their fullest potential.

Registered under the Societies Act, Amrit is headquartered in Delhi. The organization’s flagship programme, The Little Peepul Tree, operates along three strands of work: knowledge creation, information access and inclusion advocacy directed to supporting children with intellectual and developmental challenges and their families. The Amrit Foundation of India emphasizes the importance of seeing disability not as a disease or inability, but an integral aspect of human diversity. At its core, it requires a social response to combat the stigma and discrimination that is associated, the paucity of services and lack of suitable arrangements for families to access care.

Recognising that there is little empirical research in the field of disability, in particular in the domain of intellectual and developmental challenges of childhood, the Amrit Foundation of India is keen to promote disability research in India. To tackle this, Amrit has taken an initial step to encourage disability studies at the Master’s level. Amrit announces the launching of its scholarship program for Master level students for the year 2017-18.


  • To encourage research in the field of disability.
  • To stimulate young minds to work in the disability sector.
  • To bring in fresh perspectives to the field of disability.
  • To support the policy discourse of the country.
  • To engage students more effectively in the nation building process.


Applications are open to the eligible applicants who share a synopsis of their thesis along with its full text, and provide a copy of the ethics clearance from the relevant ethics review committee.

Eligible candidates must meet the additional criteria:

  • Be an Indian National.

    • Physiotherapy
    • Community Medicine
    • Economics
    • Management
    • Or related subjects.

Candidates must have completed a college approved Master’s level thesis on the subject of disability in India in the current financial year.


The scholarship will be provided to a maximum of two students. The scholarship carries an amount of Rs. 10,000 per candidate. The scholarship will be open for all research work on disability, with especial preference for studies on intellectual and developmental conditions.

Besides this, the scholarship will also provide an internship for a period of 2 months at Amrit Foundation of India to get a first-hand experience of a social sector organization working on disability issues.
