CRY Research Fellowship

In 2007, CRY created and awarded the first National Child Rights Research Fellowships (NCRRF) 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.

We are excited to announce the awardees for the 10th NCRRF (2018-19)!
