  1. what does the second point mean “☐ Top 10% of your graduating class, attested by your college.”?

  2. Is the selection process complete? How and when will we know about the selected participant?

  3. I have 3 questions, few are answered above, however few aren’t
    1) I am going to graduate at a date that is after the application deadline, but before the start date; so what can I present as proof for my Professional Architecture Degree Qualifications; as I will receive it much later than the application deadline day.

    2) I also needed a little clarification on what the second qualification: ☐ Top 10% of your graduating class, attested by your college means.

    3) In the grave possibility that I am not selected for the process further, will I be informed via email regarding that??

    Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thank You

  4. Dear Varun,

    1) Can you present a provisional marksheet or some proof that you have no more commitment to your undergraduate course? If no then it’s better to wait for the next vacancy.

    2) We mean that the college needs to give an undertaking that you were in the upper percentile of your class (this could be accumulative, or in your graduating year / semester, we will even consider applications from students who made it to the top percentile in research semesters)

    3) We recieve hundreds of applications for one or two fellowships annually, we make every effort to reply back to all applicants informing them about their selection or not, within a month of receiving the entries.

    Hope this clears your doubts.

  5. sir i graduate last year due to pandemic i am unable to take my degree and i really want to join ccf fellowship

  7. Respected sir/ma’am,

    In a scenario where I am waiting for my final semester results, Can I my 9th sem result sheet attested by college in replacement of the Professional degree in degree

  8. Hello,

    I am facing a few issues regarding the procurement of documents that are needed in the application process for the research fellow position.

    Regarding the first requisite: Professional degree in Architecture.
    —A provisional certificate is provided only when the results are not declared by the exam department. However, a bonafide certificate can be given, which states that I am a Bachelor in Architecture student, who is graduating this year.

    Regarding the second requisite: Proof proclaiming my status in the Top 10% of my graduating class, attested by your college
    —For percentile the college has no such record of it, as the results are directly visible to students on the portal.

    Please let me know at the earliest if the first response works, and what resolution shall be taken for the second response. Thank you.

  9. Dear Varun,

    For the first requisite, a Bonafide will not do. We need to know that you have passed your examinations, and have no more commitment to your undergraduate course. So we recommend you apply in the next cycle which will be advertised in November / December.

  10. Dear Prerana,

    Sorry this will not do as we need to know that you have passed your examination and have no more commitment to your undergraduate course. We recommend you apply in the next cycle which will be advertised in November / December.

  11. Hi, Varun Vashi here; responding to your earlier reply; Will my Semester 10 Marksheet work for you, in place of a Bonafide Certificate?? Let me know. Thank You

  12. Yes semester 9 + 10 marksheet should do. Best if you can get a letter from the college saying that you have passed the fifth year B. Arch examination and have no more commitments to your undergraduate course.

  13. Do the application to be mailed to charlescorreafoundation.org by mail ?

  14. Dear Ma’am/Sir,
    If I do not come under the criteria of top 10% in my undergrad class ,then will I be disqualified for the position? However, I have written academic papers before.
    Thank you!

  15. Respected sir/ma’am,
    Is there a tentative date that can be considered for completing the selection process?
    Incase the applicants haven’t received emails, they can understand they have not been selected.
