DIRI Research Fellowship is a six-month programme wherein researchers work towards understanding the application and relevance of digital identity systems especially Aadhaar. The researchers get an opportunity to generate insights on the impact of Aadhaar across areas like financial inclusion, governance and citizen engagement, improving access to goods and services, and empowering citizens, among others.
Faculty from academic institutions or researchers at a civil society organisation interested in the area of digital identity research are eligible to apply. This fellowship is open to individuals and not organisations
