Visiting Advanced Joint Research Faculty Scheme (VAJRA)
VAJRA Faculty Scheme is to bring a strong international connect to the R&D ecosystem of India. The scheme offers adjunct / visiting faculty assignments to overseas scientists, faculty members and R&D professionals.
Extra Mural Research (Individual Centric)
Individual centric competitive mode of funding will be provided under the EMR, SERB supports potential scientists for undertaking reserach in frontier areas of S&T in Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Engineering Sciences, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences & Mathematical Sciences
High Risk High Reward
The Scheme for Funding High Risk - High Reward Research aims at supporting proposals that are conceptually new and risky, and if successful, expected to have a paradigm shifting influence on the S&T. This may be in terms of formulating new hypothesis, or scientific breakthroughs which aid in emergence of new technologies.
Early Career Research (ECR) Award
This scheme aims to provide quick research support to the young researchers who are in their early career for pursuing exciting and innovative research in frontier areas of science and engineering.
National Post Doctoral Fellowship (N-PDF)
To identify motivated young researchers and provide them support for doing research in frontier areas of science and engineering. The fellows will work under a mentor, and it is hoped that this training will provide them a platform to develop as an independent researcher.
Empowerment and Equity Opportunities for Excellence in Science
This scheme drives special programs to ensure enhanced participation of people from the marginalized sections of the society in the research and development field.
Financial Assistance for Seminar/Symposia
The primary focus of the scheme is to support events having strong orientation towards scientific research in the areas of basic sciences, engineering, technology, agriculture & medicines.
Women Excellence Award
This Award is given to young women scientists below 40, who have received recognition of any one of the national academies of the country. The scheme offers a research grant of Rs.5 lacs per annum for a period of 3 years.
Intensification of Research in High Priority Areas (IRHPA)
This scheme supports proposals in high priority areas where multidisciplinary / multi-institutional expertise is required which will put our nation in international science map in that particular discipline.
J C Bose National Fellowship
The fellowship is meant to recognize active scientists and engineers for their outstanding performance and contributions. The fellowships are scientist-specific and very selective.
The fellowship is meant for brilliant scientists and engineers from all over the world to take up scientific research positions in India, especially those scientists who want to return to India from abroad.
Ayurvedic Biology Programme
To promote high quality research which would lead to major contributions to scientific knowledge and which could have implications for improving the standards of health care. The investigative work will necessarily involve the full participation of scientists and Ayurvedic experts who would be part of established institutions of science, medicine, and Ayurveda in India.
