CSIR-ASPIRE calls for online submission of Research Proposals

Aligned with the Government of India’s initiative to empower women and promote ‘Nari Shakti’ in the country and the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s efforts to put Nari Shakti at the forefront of India’s development journey, as we move towards AmritKal, CSIR has for the first time announced A Special Call for Research Grants for Women Scientists (CSIR-ASPIRE). 

In this call, only women scientists across the country are eligible to apply for research grants to carry out R&D in major disciplines of science and engineering viz Life Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Physical Sciences, Engineering Sciences and inter/transdisciplinary sciences. The funds will be provided for staff (JRF/SRF/RA), contingency and minor equipment. The total budget of a research proposal including the research fellow’s stipend should generally not exceed the limit of 25-30 lacs.

The research proposals received from women scientists will be selected and regulated by CSIR EMR-II General Research scheme guidelines: www.csirhrdg.res.in/Home/Index/1/Default/2762/62.
