Given the lockdown, travel restrictions, and university closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) has formally decided to cancel the 2020 call for BASE program. This will be applicable to all candidates who applied under the internship/fellowship modules without exception.
Recognizing that climate change, clean and efficient energy and environmental protection are among the biggest challenges facing India and the United States; the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India through its Solar Energy Research Initiative, and the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) are committed to tackling these issues by building capacity in these frontier areas.
To nurture future innovators and thought leaders in Solar Energy, the Bhaskara Advanced Solar Energy (BASE) Fellowship Program - a dynamic and transformative program has been developed to foster contacts between students and scientists from India and the United States.
