Science Academies’ Summer Research Fellowship Programme for Students and Teachers – 2020


The three national science academies offer several two-month Summer Fellowships to enable students/​teachers (studying/​teaching in India) to work with scientists associated with the three Academies during 2020. A copy of the application format, instructions to applicants including eligibility criteria, and a list of names of scientists/​faculty who have consented to guide students/​teachers to work on short-term projects is displayed in the online application.

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) the application form in the prescribed format; (b) scanned copies of marks sheets from class X till the last examination; (c) a write-up (about 150 – 250 words) as to what the applicant wants to learn and achieve. Student applicants should provide the e‑mail id of one of their teachers or HoD familiar with their work. The Academy will approach them for a recommendation letter in the prescribed format. The selected candidate should work with the assigned guide for two months any time during the calendar year, preferably during the summer. 

To Apply

Applications should be submitted by logging onto one of our websites (www​.ias​.ac​.in; www​.insain​dia​.res​.in or www​.nasi​.org​.in). The registration number assigned soon after online submission must be quoted in all future correspondence.

Information of selection along with concurrence of the guide will be despatched around February – March 2020. 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.
