Infrastructure development

A substantial and well-maintained infrastructure forms the base of multi-dimensional proliferation of any institute. TIFR-H aspires to provide a sophisticated framework for its faculty and students and your endowment towards this will be utilized for regular maintenance of the existing infrastructure. TIFR-H also welcomes your funding for establishment of any new centres. You can contact us regarding this to share your ideas and suggestions.

Travel funds for students

TCIS believes in developing multi-dimensional research cognition in students through an explicit involvement in interdisciplinary science aspects and hence strongly encourages student’s participation in various national and international conferences and symposiums. Such interactive platforms will augment their scientific temperament by making them on par with the forefronts of research and also motivate them for developing their research network through collaborations with eminent researchers worldwide.

Endowment towards this initiative will strongly encourage and motivate students for taking active part in various conferences and symposiums to implement mutual sharing of knowledge at national and international levels.

A minor fraction (~5%) of each contribution may be used for administrative/overhead expenses.

Endowed Chair Professorship

As a rapidly flourishing centre with a vision to reach a global scientific stature, TCIS strives to embellish its scientific horizons by associating with eminent faculties of Science and Technology. To this end, TCIS welcomes endowment towards prestigious Chair Professorships to support exceptional faculty members.

An individual senior or mid-level faculty member with outstanding research credentials will be awarded with the Chair Professorship. The awardee will be in continuous association with the Endower/Organization


TCIS acts as an interface between high end research innovations and public awareness regarding science and technology through its outreach programs. It has a parallel vision for establishing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education in India, which will replace the traditional ‘rote’ system and inculcate an innovative and scientific thinking spirit in the future generations. As a part of TCIS outreach, a number of initiatives such as “deep learning” in the TSWREIS schools, “meet a scientist”, “community guidance” and “Sawaal-Jawaab” are taken up.

Your endowment towards TCIS Outreach will be channelized as student and faculty support for pursuing community-connected opportunities and integrate their scientific and research oriented cognition with the "real world" issues.

Visiting Students Research Program (VSRP)

To fuel up the scientific and technological spirit of young intellects, TCIS provides the Visiting Students Research Program (VSRP), which centralizes innovative undergraduate minds from renowned Universities/Institutes across the country, to work with eminent faculty members of TCIS in frontier areas of science.

We believe that training and motivating young intellect towards emerging technological trends and ideas will be a nucleating strategy for further advances in science innovations and technology.

Your endowment towards VSRP will augment TCIS’s vision to expand and strengthen the knowledge base of the country.
