The university staff and students have also bagged five French Government Fellowships and an equal number of European fellowships during the same period.

The EFLU academicians have also bagged four Major Research Projects each worth about Rs 35 lakh from the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR). They have also bagged projects from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and University Grants Commission, all worth around
Rs 1 crore.
