How to Apply

There are TWO steps in the application procedure. Candidates must first register by entering their name and valid e-mail address in the appropriate registration boxes below. An application password will then be automatically sent to the candidates e-mail address; the e-mail address and the password must be entered in order to fill out the Online Application Form. The Application Form also requires the names and e-mail addresses of two referees. Candidates must submit the Online Application Form by April 29, 2022. When the form is submitted, the candidate will receive an e-mail containing his/her Online ID, an account password, and confirmation that s/he has applied for INAT-2022. E-mails will also be automatically sent to the two referees, requesting them to fill and submit the online Confidential Assessment Form. The candidates should inform their referees about the Assessment Form. Note that each applicant must submit his/her Application Form before the referee fills the Assessment Form. Please e-mail The Co-ordinator at in case of any problems with the online forms.

Based on the applications and referee assessments, a subset of candidates will be short-listed to take the computerised written test, to be held at various screening centers on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. Details regarding the screening centers and registration procedure (ID, Admit cards, etc.) will be provided in due course to the short-listed candidates. The final selection to the research scholarship will be based on the results of the written test and two online interviews (on June 20, 21 and/or 22, 2022). Note that the selection through INAT is in addition to the selection through the Joint Entrance Screening Test (JEST). Based on the marks in the written test, a further subset of the candidates will be invited to attend two interviews, by two different committees. The final selection will be based on a combination of the marks obtained in the written test and the interviews.

Please register yourself as a candidate for INAT-2022. If you have already registered and have received your application password, you can proceed to fill the Online Application Form below.
