Eligibility Criteria for Project Scholar:

PhD (Basic Science)

  • Minimum 60% marks or 6.5 CGPA (in a 10-point scale) in the Masters or equivalent degree in appropriate discipline with a consistently good academic record. A provisional certificate is acceptable.
  • Minimum 55% marks or 6.0 CGPA (in a 10-point scale) in the Bachelor of Science or equivalent degree in appropriate discipline with a consistently good academic record. A provisional certificate is acceptable.
  • Minimum 60% marks or 6.5 CGPA (in a 10-point scale) is required in all other examinations. A single relaxation up to 10% marks either at Xth or XIIth level examination or equivalent is permitted.
    The candidate must have a valid GATE score or have secured a UGC/CSIR-NET JRF.

Note: The scholars working in sponsored research projects at IIT Bhubaneswar can apply for the PhD Programme if they meet the applicable eligibility criteria for admission and have at least two years of fellowship tenure remaining, counting from the academic session or semester in which they are seeking admission. If such a candidate intends to be considered for Institute Research Assistantship after the tenure of the project is over, he/she must present a valid GATE score at that point of time or provide evidence of a valid GATE score used in the year of admission into M.Tech. or equivalent programme.
