For U.S. Students

For U.S. Students

To nurture future innovators and thought leaders, the Science & Engineering Board (SERB), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and WINStep Forward have partnered to develop a dynamic and transformative student exchange program between premier institutions in India and the United States. The program is named in honor of Satyendra Nath Bose (1894 - 1974), a visionary Indian physicist best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s. The class of particles that obey Bose-Einstein statistics, Bosons, was named after him.

The Program is envisaged to:
  • Introduce talented American students to the long-standing tradition of scientific inquiry and innovation in India;
  • Encourage students to consider a career in Science and Technology;
  • Foster interactions between next generation of pioneers in Science and Technology; and,
  • Build long-term R&D linkages and collaborations across disciplines, cultures and geographical boundaries.
