Feb 2020. 

We invite PhD students to apply for this grant by filling the form at the
pagehere: https://www.alumni.iisc.ac.in/page/application-for-tata-trusts-travel

Applications will be evaluated periodically (during Apr 2019 - Feb 2020) by
the committee of Divisional Chairs and grants will be disbursed on a rolling
basis, based on the availability of funds. Each selected student can avail
up to Rs. 2 lakhs.

Kindly note that once you receive the grant, any
publications/studies/banners/posters supported by the grant must include the
