Partial Fund support to students for presenting their research work at International Conferences of repute & excellence.

Conference Assistance opens up an opportunity for students to participate in international conferences and seminars, and present their research work.

Currently, our greatest area of financial need is providing travel support to our students for attending International Conferences.

SUPPORTING STUDENTS WITH CONFERENCE ASSISTANCE

There is a substantial increase in the number of applications for the travel grant and every year we are witnessing an increase of about 50-60%.

Due to the shortage of funds, we have temporarily withdrawn this assistance during the F.Y. 2016-17 and now the students are only provided travel assistance in an advanced mode where they need to repay back the entire amount in stipulated time frame.

CRITICALITY

Current fund position allows us to support only 30% of the total applications received in any given year. IITK has been able to support from all sources both government and non-government only 100 of the 350 application received this year.

WHY STUDENTS NEEDS ASSISTANCE

In our conversations with students who want to attend Conference/ Seminar/ Symposium/ Workshop in abroad, many have told us that cost is a barrier. Conference assistance makes it easy to budget for their trip, incentivize donors to contribute, and even request offline support. We believe in the power of travel, sharing knowledge and want to make it possible for anyone to take the trip of their dreams!
