Guwahati Press Club with the support from ERD Foundation, Guwahati has declared a short term fellowship programme to study various aspects of pavement dwellers (primarily beggars) of the city. The one and half month long fellowship is expected to provide space for the journalist to go for an in-depth study (and report) about the issue. The fellow will try to analyze the reason behind their homelessness, categorization and also the security aspect of the homeless persons in Guwahati.

The selected fellow will be offered Rs 15,000 as remuneration. At the end of the fellowship, (s)he has to submit a comprehensive report (of not less than 5000 words) on the issue (preferably in English ) to the press club, which may be brought out in printed form later.
