Institute Support for Travel

The Institute will support some international/national travel requirements of its faculty from its own resources. Up to 50 requests, each limited to a maximum of Rs. 2 lakhs, will be supported in each calendar year, for the following purposes:

  1. Attendance of conferences/seminars/workshops, in which the faculty member has to make an oral presentation (invited talk, paper, or poster)
  2. Advanced training program or instructional workshop, which the faculty member would like to attend in order to keep abreast of emerging research topics
  3. Collaborative research: already existing or for exploring new opportunities
  4. Support for travel by a student of the faculty member for using research facilities not available in IISc or elsewhere in India

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 for travelling to the event highlighting the reputation, importance, and competitiveness of the event.

Faculty members are requested to apply as early as possible, as the committee of Divisional Chairs will evaluate such travel grant applications once in each quarter.
