To nurture future innovators and thought leaders, the Science & Engineering Board
(SERB), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, the
Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison
(UW) are partnering to develop 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 class of particles that obey Bose-Einstein statistics, Bosons,
was named after him.
The program is envisaged to:
- provide an opportunity to Indian students to experience world-class research facilities
in leading U.S. institutions;
- encourage and motivate students to take up research as a career;
- pave the way for the next generation of pioneers and innovators in science and technology
to interact with each other, and;
- build long-term R&D linkages and collaborations cutting across boundaries around
Note: Students with a biology background should consider applying to the
Khorana Program for Scholars.
- Indian citizens currently pursuing a Bachelors or Masters' degree at a recognized
institution of higher education and learning in India.
- Open to students of Atmospheric and Earth Sciences; Chemical Sciences; Engineering
Sciences; Mathematical and Computational Sciences; and, Physical Sciences
Program Dates: May – July 2014
Submission Deadline: 15 November 2013
