Given the lockdown, travel restrictions, and university closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) had earlier requested the 2020 BHAVAN/WARI program to be kept in abeyance until further notices. After a careful review of the pandemic situation, the Competent Authority of the Department of Science and Technology has formally decided to cancel the 2020 call for BHAVAN/WARI program. This will apply to all interns/fellows without exception.
Recognizing that Water is of fundamental importance for human development, the environment and the economy, and therefore needs to feature prominently in the development agenda of both India and the United States; the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska (DWFI) and the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) have partnered to nurture cooperation between students and scientists from both countries. The Water Advanced Research and Innovation (WARI) Fellowship Program - a dynamic and transformative program has thus been developed to foster long term Indo-American science and technology partnerships.
