The Sree Padmavathi Venkateswara Foundation (SreePVF), Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, incorporated under Section 7(2) and Rule 8 of the Government of India Companies Rule 2014, is a private Foundation which has been supporting excellence in medical education and care through a variety of methods. It has also been offering awards, donations and grants to individuals and institutions, societies and foundations, whose aims and activities are in tune with those of the Foundation.
Recognizing that in addition to the government, Private Foundations and Trusts should also support research and technology through grants, SreePVF has decided to award three-year research grants (of up to a total of Rs. 3 crores) for individuals and groups engaged in the broad areas of biological and chemical sciences. As a first step in this direction,
SreePVF invites applications for the award of one such grant in the area of biological sciences. A team of well known experts in biological sciences has kindly agreed to help the Foundation in reviewing the applications and select the one most suited for the grant.
