Management Centre for Human Values

Indian Institute of Management Calcutta

Scholar-in-Residence Programme, 2022-23

The Scholar-in-Residence Programme at the Management Centre for Human Values (MCHV), IIM Calcutta is meant for outstanding scholars from universities and other academic institutions to pursue advanced research in the area of human values bridging the fields of humanities and social sciences, broadly defined, and working in disciplines such as anthropology, economics, geography, history, law, philosophy, politics, sociology and any other discipline related to management.

Under this Programme, the Scholar will spend two to four weeks at the Institute to:

  • Share their expertise and experience with students and faculty members at the Institute through a seminar presentation;
  • Interact with the doctoral students at the Institute on a regular basis;
  • Further a personal research project in the area of values;
  • Develop their contacts with the like-minded scholars within the Institute

The Scholar(s) will receive free boarding and lodging facilities at the Institute. They will have office space at the MCHV and they will also receive a token honorarium of Rupees Twenty-five Thousand. The Programme covers round trip domestic/ international air travel (economy class) from the place of the scholar's residence to Kolkata.

The selection will be based on the quality of research of the Scholar. Research output of the scholar, and the potential of the Scholar's research to further the study of values under the auspices of the MCHV would be primary criteria for selection. Those interested can submit their CV and a one-page note demonstrating how their research-stay will contribute to the study of values in their home institution as well as in the host institution. Scholars can also be nominated by their peers and colleagues provided the nomination comes along with the CV of the Scholar and the one-page note. MCHV Committee reserves the right to invite scholars based on its own wisdom.
