About This Fellowship Opportunity

For the past two years, IUB Chemistry has informally partnered with the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) to provide research experience for undergraduate students during two summer months. This program is, right now, internally funded by the Chemistry department, the graduate school and the Dean’s office. While this pilot program began in 2014 as a partnership with IITB, it is currently being broadened to allow participation from other top-notch schools in India. (Broadening beyond schools in India is also likely in future years.)
To be considered, the students must be ranked high on GPA and/or already have research experience in any of the topics that are of interest to the chemistry faculty at IUB. In all cases, students are broadly expected to be mission driven and have a strong commitment to the goals of their project.


Period: 8-10 weeks during the summer months of May through July.
Next Deadline: January 1, 2016
Submission Materials: Brief CV highlighting top academic and research performances, general area of interest.
We are currently accepting applications from IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Rourkee, IISER Pune and BITS Pilani.
