Admission in IIMs for the Fellow Programme in Management using GATE Score

This post is about the “Fellow Programme in Management (FPM)” of IIMs in which students are also selected based on their GATE Score. The duration of this programme is usually about 4-5 years. Most of the students preparing for GATE usually don’t know about this programme. Therefore I thought that it’s worth sharing about this programme with all of you. If you did not get admission in a good institute, then you need not worry. Just apply in this programme using your GATE score. The application forms will be available mostly in September and October.

The Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) is the doctoral programme of the IIMs. The objective of this programme is to provide students with necessary skills to identify and research complex issues in the field of management. Unlike other programmes in IIMs, there is no fee for this programme. Boarding and Lodging is also free for all students in most of the institutes. Beside this you are also entitled to get an awesome monthly scholarship for the duration of your study and an yearly contingency allowance to cover research expenses, expenses on books and photocopying etc.. The scholarship amount is not same for all IIMs, but it’s the best that you can get in India compared to any other doctorate programme. There are many other financial benefits too, which depends on the institute in which you get the admission.

If you think that you belong to a poor family and you need to support you family while studying, then this programme is the best for you. The following are the details of financial aids available in different IIMs and the website links of their Fellow Programme in Management:
