Women Scientists Fellowship Scheme 2011


The Fellowship Scheme for Women Scientists for societal programmes is an initiative of the Department of Science & Technology. This scheme is addressed to women scientists and technologists who took a ‘break in their careers’ due to social responsibilities but have a desire to return to mainstream science and work as bench-level scientists. Women scientists desiring to apply for this scheme are required to develop their own research project/ proposals demonstrating science and technological applications for societal benefits. The fellowships will provide an opportunity to women scientists to re-enter research after a break in career, through support for S&T based R&D projects addressing needs of people in unorganised urban or rural areas and give them an opportunity for S&T capacity building on issues relevant in societal programmes. The scholarship will be given initially for two years and may be extended to the third year in exceptional cases



Eligibility:

Indian nationals living in India, with a career break of at least three years. They must not be employed in a full-time job. Their age should be below 60 years at the time of applying. They must possess one of the following qualifications: PhD or master’s degree in science or a bachelor’s/master’s degree in engineering / technology, architecture, medicine / pharmacy / veterinary science
