What Is the GRAAM scholar Program?

The scholar program is being organized by the Grassroots Research and Advocacy Movement (GRAAM). For a student/trainee, an internship is meant to learn as well as gain work experience while working in a relevant organization. Our past experiences with students say that in most of the cases they are engaged with work where learning is minimal. Hence, GRAAM Scholar Program GRAAM designed a unique concept of one-month long ‘scholar program’ where students will gain practical experience of conducting a research/policy study with the field partners under the mentorship of GRAAM, and also publishing their work (if selected) in the annual journal of the organization. Thus, the program has come over with a threefold objective:
