Science Academies' Summer Research Fellowship Programme for Students and Teachers 2011


The three national Science Academies offer several two-month Summer Fellowships to enable students/teachers to work with scientists associated with the three Academies during 2011. Attached is a list of those scientists who have consented to guide students/teachers to work on short-term projects.

Applications are invited from interested students and teachers from all universities and colleges affiliated to UGC/AICTE/MCI/Accredited Institutions of State Universities for these Fellowships. The application should include: (a) a brief resume of the applicant (in the prescribed format);  (b) a write-up (in about 250 words) as to what  the applicant wants to learn and achieve;  (c) the guide with whom the applicant would like to work. Student applicants should include a recommendation letter from a teacher (in the prescribed format) familiar with their work, in a sealed envelope. The selected candidate may work in consultation with the assigned guide for two months any time during the calendar year, preferably during the summer.

Applications should be submitted online through one of our websites, or; however a copy of the application together with enclosures must be sent by speed post (within 7 days) to The Coordinator, Science Education Programme, Indian Academy of Sciences, C.V. Raman Avenue, Near Mekri Circle  Sadashivanagar, Bangalore 560 080. The registration number assigned soon after online submission must be quoted both in the hard copy of the application to be sent and in the letter of recommendation to be forwarded by the teacher in the case of student applicants.

Information of selection along with concurrence of the guide will be despatched by early March 2011.The selected students/teachers will be provided appropriate round trip train fare and a monthly fellowship to meet their living expenses at the place of work.


Due to a breakdown in our database server the online applications submitted for Summer Fellowship till November 19 are lost. As indicated in the acknowledgement sent to applicants print copies of applications must be submitted.
We have already established contact with those applicants who have submitted print copies of the applications. We request those applicants who have not yet sent in their print copies do so immediately in order to recover the online version. THIS IS MOST URGENT. You may also inform your friends who have applied for the Summer Fellowship.
