S.N.Bose Scholars Program 2018

The Science & Engineering Research Board (SERB), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and WINStep Forward have partnered to support a dynamic and transformative student exchange program between premier institutions in India and the United States. The program is named in honor of Satyendra Nath Bose (1894 – 1974), a visionary Indian physicist best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s.
The S.N. Bose Scholars Program provides an opportunity to Indian students (currently enrolled in a Bachelors or Masters’ degree in Atmospheric and Earth Sciences; Chemical Sciences; Engineering Sciences; Mathematical and Computational Sciences; and Physical Sciences) to undertake research at the various US Universities in the summer of 2018 for a period of 10-12 weeks.
Students have to be nominated by their HoDs. 2 meritorious students are to be nominated from each department i.e. 2 applications per stream, per department, per institute. For this purpose, for example, the usual two years Masters in physics and Integrated Masters in Physics may be counted as 2 different streams and 2 different applications.
Respective Heads of Departments are requested to send the nominations to deaniar@iitm.ac.in and oir4.iitm@gmail.com on or before October 15 2017.
