The University Grants Committee provides a number of funding opportunities to support research projects and activities at the UGC-funded universities, and two of these opportunities are the General Research Fund (GRF), and the Early Career Scheme (ECS). The former aims to support researchers who have achieved or have the potential to achieve excellence, while the ECS aims to nurture junior academics and prepare them for the career ahead.
