Institute Support for Travel

The Institute will support some international travel requirements of its faculty from its own resources. Each request is limited to a maximum of Rs. 2 lakhs for the following purposes:    1. Attendance of conferences/seminars/workshops, in which the faculty member has to make an oral presentation (invited talk or paper).    2. Attendance of conferences/seminars/workshops in which the faculty member is organising a scientific session.The faculty member must apply for such travel grants on the prescribed fillable pdf form which can be downloaded from here. Please email the form after filling it to  with subject as : [Requesting IISc Travel support: “Your name” “Your Department”].The faculty member should include in a separate sheet a justification and other relevant documents for traveling to the event highlighting the reputation, importance, and competitiveness of the event. Faculty who received IoE travel grant support once will not be considered again until two years elapse from the date of support.

The committee of Deans will evaluate the travel grant applications once in each quarter (July-Sept, Oct-Dec, Jan-Mar, Apr-June). The application should be for travel that commence in a later quarter; e.g., if an application is received during the July-Sept quarter, this should be for travel commencing on or after 01 October. Faculty members are therefore requested to apply as early as possible.

The deadlines to receive the applications are 20 June, 20 September, 20 December and 20 March. Decisions will be communicated by the end of those months.
