Research Outreach Initiative (ROI)

Stopped temporarily, will restart soon

The Centre launched the Research Outreach Initiative (ROI) programme to provide a first-hand experience in front-line research to highly motivated students presently pursuing a post-graduate course in Physics/Chemistry/Materials Science. Those who have completed the post-graduate course within the last one year, are also eligible to apply. In exceptional cases, students pursuing an Engineering degree and in the final year of the course, may also be considered.

Eligible students may apply anytime of the year, using the template attached below. Selection is based on scrutiny by an expert committee, followed by in-person interaction with the shortlisted applicants. The selected candidates will be contacted by the respective faculty mentors.

The selected students will have to pay the following fees

  • Rs.5,000 as Project Fee
  • Rs.1,000 as a one-time Certification Fee
  • Rs.5,400/- per month as license fees for those who opt for hostel stay.

Students with outstanding performances at the interaction will be eligible for a financial assistance of Rs. 16,000/- per month

The ROI programme is available throughout the year; mutual convenience of the student and mentor will be taken into account before scheduling the visit period.
