They will be expected to conduct fieldwork in their respective cities, towns, or villages where they will be based at that time and required to submit the report of the same by the end of the two weeks of action research and fieldwork. Research Faculties will teach qualitative research methodology, mentor the fellows throughout their fieldwork, and help them with the analysis and report writing.

In addition, selected fellows will be assisted in getting their reports published on IMPRI Insights and other renowned newspapers, magazines, and journals. Each submitted report will be evaluated for quality and examined for plagiarism; therefore, fellows are required to produce the original report. The fieldwork at the end of the fellowship will be a compulsory parameter of evaluation.
