Chennupati and Vidya Jagadish Fellowship and Scholarship Awards


  1. Due to ongoing uncertainty and challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and considering the health and safety of staff and scholars, the 2022 round of the Jagadish Endowment Scholarship will offer a limited number of remotely supervised projects only. Details of such remotely supervised projects will be available on this webpage in December 2021.
  2. Applications will be invited from December 2021 onwards and applicants will be required to nominate their interest in one or two of these research projects as part of their application.
  3. Because the 2022 round of Jagadish Endowment Scholarship will comprise remotely supervised projects only, scholars will not be travelling to the ANU to participate in these projects. Therefore, no monetary award or stipend will be offered to scholars selected as part of the 2022 round. However, all scholars will be provided with the opportunity to participate in a range of professional development, networking, and socio-cultural activities and events.
