The “woman scientist scheme (WOS)” has been evolved in this context, by the department of science and technology (DST) for providing opportunities to woman scientist who desire to mainstream science and work as bench-level scientist been implemented for the women scientist not having regular position are being encouraged to pursue research in frontier areas of science and engineering. This category of scholarships is meant to motivate women scientist to pursue R&D in emerging and frontier areas of science and engineering. The women scientist will be provided flexibility to undertake research at a suitable institution depending on their area of interest. These scholarships are expected to provide opportunities of women scientist to get into scientific profession so that they are able to contribute to science and technology developments of societal relevance and to take up S&T-based internship followed by self-employment.
Under this scheme, one of our faculty Mrs. M.Ragam, department of physics is bestowed to receive research scholarships in WOS-A scheme to pursue the activities during 2010-2013.
