The IITKGP Foundation has awarded 15 scholarships for internships at several institutes. This innovative program will facilitate IIT-KGP students to intern with some of the top global institutions including California Institute of Technology, MIT, University of Illinois-Urbana, Georgia Tech and the University of Michigan in the US; NUS and Nanyang University in Singapore, Darmstadt in Germany and at Lausanne in Switzerland.
“We are proud to continue this program to foster a synergy between the excellent education at IIT-KGP with the research and studies at the world’s other top universities,” said Ron Gupta, President of the IITKGP Foundation.
This year, over one hundred of the top IIT-KGP students applied for these internships, of which 15 were selected to receive the awards. The topics of research cover a wide array of subjects depending on the student and the host institution. Students going to CalTech will research on scientific topics of hydrogen and helium stability; while those going to NUS Singapore will concentrate on design of robotics systems and algorithmic game theory. A group of students will work with MIT on potential solutions for urban brownfield site developments.
The IITKGP Foundation will continue to support initiatives like this to build robust relationships between the students and premier institutions to foster the contributions that these students bring to future technological developments in their fields and beyond!
The IITKGP Foundation of the USA would like to congratulate and wish the 15 scholarship awardees the best of luck and success in their upcoming internships!
