Visiting Students Research Program

The information in this page is for the year 2020.

This programme is intended to orient students towards research in Mathematics. Students doing a Masters degree with a good academic record and motivation for research are invited to apply. Exceptionally good and motivated students from BSc/BTech may also apply. Please note that the VSRP programme is for students currently enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's programme and not for PhD students or faculty members.

Students selected under the programme are invited to visit the Institute, and are guided through an advanced Reading Course (or other appropriate project). This will afford students an opportunity to interact with leading mathematicians of the country. There will also be special lectures aimed at introducing the students to advanced areas of mathematics. The students will have access to the Institute's library and certain other facilities during the visit.

There will be two phases of the programme; the first phase will run from May 5 to June 4, 2020, and the second will run from June 9 to July 9, 2020. Each selected student will be assigned to one of the two batches.

Selected students will be paid a monthly stipend @ Rs 7000/- per month and to and fro travel re-imbursement from the place of their residence (address for correspondence mentioned in the application). Also, free shared accommodation on-or-off- campus is provided.
