Science & Engineering Research Board, India

The Science & Engineering Research Board in India was established in 2008 by an Act of Parliament, with the objective of supporting basic research in emerging areas of Science and Engineering.  It provides financial assistance to academics engaged in research, academic institutions, laboratories, and industry, and aims to build up best practices in the promotion and funding of basic research.

Since 2015 the Board and the Cambridge Trust have offered a programme of jointly-funded PhD scholarships for Indian students in STEM areas; the scholarships are called the Cambridge India Ramanujan Scholarships.  The awards are named after Srinivasa Ramanujan, a mathematical genius who was largely self-taught but who spent five years in Cambridge working with the leading mathematicians of the day.

Note for students

You are encouraged to use the Trust's scholarships search to find all the awards for which you may be eligible.
