Introducing ACM India Anveshan Setu Fellowships, PhD Student Visitor Program

January 4, 2021

New Year wishes! If you are a full-time/part-time/sponsored registered CS/IT PhD student in India, here is an opportunity to visit some of the faculty in your area of work. ACM India is kickstarting a PhD student visitor program, Anveshan Setu Fellowship, allowing students to visit faculty of their choice (mutually agreed among student, advisor and host faculty depending on the research interests) for four weeks to get an immersive experience of research.

Program details (including objectives, eligibility, salient features, expectations, tentative timeline, and template for No-Objection certificate from the advisor) can be seen at https://india.acm.org/research/anveshan-setu. Any PhD student (not restricted to ACM members) can apply for this fellowship.

Mentors from these institutes are interested in hosting students. We plan to support up to 50 students in this initial offering of the fellowship. I am sure you would like to be one of them. Preference will be given to those who have more direct overlapping research interests with the host faculty, and students who have concrete directions in their PhD work.
