A revised deadline for Indian postgraduate students to apply for a four-month funded Fellowship at Judge Business School, Cambridge comes up this week.

Under an agreement between The Dr D.C. Pavate Foundation, Karnatak University in Dhawad in the state of Karnataka, southern India, and Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, outstanding graduates from Karnataka under the age of 40 may apply.

The Dr D.C. Pavate Fellowship is for a four-month period of study, with residence at Sidney Sussex College.

The Pavate Fellowship at Judge Business School, effective from January 2011, is on offer to applicants from the State of Karnataka who have a good academic record and interest in any aspect of Indian business and management.

Candidates eligible to apply will hold a PhD or a first class Masters degree and have been educated for a minimum of five years continuously at an educational institution located in Karnataka, or employed in Karnataka for a minimum of five years.

The fellowship will cover economy class return air fare, a stipend of £3500 and academic fees of £2700.

D.C. Pavate (1899-1979) was an alumnus of Sidney Sussex College, graduating with a distinguished academic record in Mathematics as a Wrangler in 1927. He was Vice-chancellor of the Karnatak University at Dharwad, India (1954-67), President of the Inter-University Board and a member of the Executive Council of Commonwealth Universities. He received the award of Padma Bhushan from the President of India and was later Governor of the State of Punjab (1967-73).

In 1999 to mark the centenary of his birth and the Golden Jubilee of Karnatak University, the Fellowship scheme was set up to commemorate the visionary contribution made by him to the University and to the cause of education.

The Master of Sidney Sussex College, Dr Andrew Wallace-Hadrill, said: "The links between Cambridge and India are strong, deep, diverse and very important. In Sidney Sussex College we are honoured to remember our very distinguished mathematician, Dr D.C. Pavate, through selecting young academics who will follow in his footsteps to make a profound contribution to knowledge and to relations between Cambridge and India."
