Guidelines for Award of Fellowships

The Fellows elected in accordance with the prescribed Rules and Regulations, constitute the General Body of the Academy. With the approval of the General Body, new categories of Corporate Fellows and Corporate Members were introduced in 1998 and 2002, respectively. The purpose of this initiative was to encourage and recognize corporate and other institutions who form an important non-academic component of the NARS family and provide strong support in terms of programmes and finances for furtherance of the objectives and activities of the Academy. Please click for Guidelines and Nomination Form for Election of Fellowship.
