Grants for Seminar and Conferences
The scheme provides financial support towards partial travel / registration to scientists/researchers in various disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Medicine, Engineering, Space Science & Technology, Computer Science and Engineering and other related areas to attend international scientific conferences, seminars and workshops abroad. Highly meritorious candidates would be provided enhanced support. The selection committee consisting of eminent scientists usually meets six times a year to scrutinize and recommend award of travel grants. All conditions being satisfied, applicants whose work exhibit innovation and novelty, those who have been successful in obtaining partial assistance from other sources as well as Young scientists would be accorded preference.
