Aimed at building greater research capacity, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has consistently been striving for excellence and distinction in the areas of Research and Innovation in the subjects of national importance and has supported the regulatory initiatives aimed towards bringing Indian economy back on the growth trajectory.

It is said that ‘Research is formalized curiosity’. Over a period of time, Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Programme has evolved gradually from its purpose of ‘knowledge dissemination’ to ‘knowledge creation’. This shift in emphasis has, thus, created an ecosystem of advanced research and publications.

We are happy to share that the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) through its Research Committee had introduced ICAI Doctoral Scholarship Scheme in 2020 for the members who wish to pursue Ph.D.

The said scheme seeks to provide requisite support by way of monthly scholarship to the eligible candidates with outstanding academic credentials, intellectual curiosity and needed discipline to make scholarly contribution. The candidates under the Scheme have to demonstrate their independent research ideas through publications in top class academic journals and make scholarly presentations of their work. Their contributions should extend not only to business practices, but also to public policy and governance.

Taking the initiative forward this year as well, we invite you to ICAI Doctoral Scholarship Scheme 2021 and would be happy to know your academic interests if you have the inclination and commitment towards research that shall further strengthen your career.


Doctoral scholarship will be awarded to registered Ph.D. Scholars from UGC recognized reputed Indian Universities/ Deemed Universities/ Colleges, IIMs having University/IIMs approved Ph.D. Programme to pursue and complete their Doctoral Research in Auditing, Taxation, Commerce, Management and Accounting. The candidates must have confirmed Ph.D. Registration.
