1. What are the details of the selection process?
The selection is based on your academic performances (weighted properly with the ranking of your current affiliation) and the statement of research. Based on these, we will seek letters of references for the shortlisted candidates to make the final selection.

No! The selection is purely based on the above-mentioned criterion only.

Any Indian national is eligible to apply. At the moment, we are not taking any application from foreign nationals.

5. I am studying engineering for B.Tech degree. Can I apply?
Absolutely! First, you look at the divisional webpages and find research areas of faculties/scientific staffs with which your interests overlap. If necessary, you can communicate with those people beforehand.

The selection of the Student Summer Program (SSP) is completely independent of a faculty agreeing with to supervise you.

But it is not necessary/mandatory to contact with any faculty beforhand.

8. I am interested in this XYZ area and want to work with ZYX people only. Will I be allowed?

No! The Summer program is an intense program, and it is mandatory to stay all days during the program. Only in exceptional cases, we will relax your joining by a few days, and prior permission must be taken.

10. Can I take a break in between to attend some xyz?
No! You are supposed to be here all along during the program.

First, you talk with your academic advisor. If she/he agrees, check with the coordinators whether accommodation (if u are staying at the GH) for those days are available. But note that you need to pay the accommodation cost for those days. In no situation, you will be paid stipend for more than 60 days.
