Research Grants Scheme


In keeping with its commitment to promote academic research at various levels, D.T.S.S College of Commerce has initiated a new Research Grants Scheme for faculty members and students from 2017-2018. Enabled by the vision of Principal Dr. M.S. Kurhade and the benevolence of the College Management members, the Research Grant Scheme aims to provide a one-time, monetary grant to faculty members and students to encourage their research efforts. There are two categories of Research Grants:

  • 5 faculty members will be awarded a one-time grant of Rs. 10,000/- each, for conducting a minor research project in any established academic discipline, for a period of one year, based on either their existing or a new research proposal.
  • 5 students will be selected from the M.Com., B.B.I., B.Sc. (I.T) and B.M.S departments and will be given a one-time award of Rs. 5,000/- each, for their research-based projects which they have to prepare as part of their academic curriculum.
