At Ahmedabad University, we believe that finances should not stand in the way of pursuing education. The MA students needing additional financial assistance can opt for a Fellowship. Under the fellowship, the students are required to undertake Teaching Assistantship under a Faculty member assisting them in teaching. This opportunity provides students with both financial assistance and exposure to learning.
