CRY Research Fellowship

In 2007, CRY created and awarded the first National Child Rights Research Fellowships to six individuals. The idea was to provide an opportunity for Indians willing to invest time and creative energy to explore the issue of what is in the best interest of children.

CRY is happy to announce the awardees for the National Child Rights Research Fellowship (NCRRF)

  2. Ponnambily Chandy for a study on “Determinants of health and vulnerabilities among children in slum areas in Chennai”.
  3. Hemlata Kansotia who will be looking for keen insights into “Is the `Best Interest Principle’, a value, a constitutional right, an interpretative advocacy instrument or a rule of law?”
