At IIT Gandhinagar, Biswas is pursuing a doctorate in humanities and social sciences. To better penetrate emergency climatic conditions and conservation interventions, she will head to and collaborate with the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) to research the ecological-cultural transformation of human-seal associations in the Northernmost Scottish Islands over some time. 

At IIT Guwahati's Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Rasaq is a fifth-year doctorate student. He will be looking into how environmental transformation has affected the interactions between proprietors and agricultural labourers in the rice cultivation areas of Chellanam, a coastal district of Cochin, the state of Kerala, where he will be positioned at the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences at the University of Glasgow.

The British Council Scotland and Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities collaborating to provide EARTH Scholarships. These scholarship programmes' overarching goal is to emphasise the contributions and approaches made by the arts, humanities, and ecological fields to combating climate catastrophe as well as their potential for multidisciplinary study in the context of the STEAM field, an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics. 

Additionally, the scholarship programme will foster cross-border mobility as well as research prospects that will help establish and promote innovative methodologies for addressing climate catastrophes on a global scale. Furthermore, it intends to encourage resilient research and cultural exchanges within and outside of the arts, humanities, and cultural disciplines of study.
