XROS Fellowship Frequently asked questions

The underlying thought of XROS Fellowship is to upskill Developers on emerging technologies and prepare them for the jobs of the future. Some of the partner organisations have indeed committed to hiring the right set of developers who match the skills required by the partner organisations and they shall be making pre placement offers to the deserving candidates.

The projects would largely be AR, VR, XR, 3D Modeling and related projects.

The minimum stipend committed to each of shortlisted students working on a live project is INR 4 Lakh per month to be paid in the following 3 tranches :
  • 1st Month - 1 Lakh INR
  • 2nd Month - 1 Lakh INR
  • 3rd Month - Post Final Report Submission, to be signed off by the assigned Mentor- 2 Lakhs INR
  • Final Submission report needs to be approved by the assigned mentor in minimum 90 days and maximum 120 days

No. The developer must only work on 1 project under the supervision of the mentor / mentors. Working in multiple organisations or on multiple projects is not allowed.

Of course. We would be happy to have working professionals as part of the XROS Fellowship.
