Early Career Fellows

Early Career Fellows

National Data Innovation Centre (NDIC), a part of the National Council of Applied Economic Research, seeks to build a community of scholars interested in the collection and analysis of survey data and contribute to the development of the field of survey methodology in India. NDIC seeks to develop a community of young scholars through a year-long non-residential fellowship program.

Key output of this program will be a high-quality measurement brief that will address some domains of human development, broadly defined. For example, it may explore consistencies and inconsistencies in existing data, evaluate the applicability of international methodologies to the Indian context, or propose new data collection methodologies.
