Financial Support for Research Promotion

Nilgiri College of Arts and Science aims to impart quality higher education through innovative teaching and learning practices. To impart holistic development for students, the teachers need to evolve into erudite scholars. We strongly believe that the development of the teachers plays a crucial role in the student life as well as the development of the institution. For the same, it creates a centre of excellence and an ambience in the college that the staffs are encouraged and motivated to attend periodic Professional Development Programs.

The management of Nilgiri College of Arts and Science supports the faculty in their professional and academic development by providing financial support. The need for this policy is to assist the faculty members in improving performance in teaching, scholarly activity and service to the institution as well as the society.
