Overseas Fellowship/Associateship for NER scientists

DBT, in 2010-2011, initiated this scheme under special programme for the North Eastern Region (NER). This scheme is for the early and mid-career Scientists holding permanent positions in NER conducting research to generate human resource trained in cutting edge areas of biotechnology. It promotes and supports scientists of merit in their pursuit of skill enhancement in scientific research/training in overseas laboratories for short term as well as long term. The intent is that consequent to their associateship, these awardees would bring lots of intellectual value and acquired knowledge benefits to the NER host institutions and researchers in terms of advanced research techniques, training, lab management, grant skills etc. Under this scheme, Asociateship is awarded to the researchers working in any of the North-Eastern States of India for conducting research or training in overseas research laboratories in different areas of biotechnology/life sciences based on their scientific strength and selection by the expert committee. This Associateship is offered for short term (3 months/6 months) and long term (1 yr) duration. A monthly fellowship of $ 3000 is given to the awardees on completion of each month.
