Get Your Final Year Project Funded by ICT R&D Fund

ngiri1_lrgNational ICT R&D Fund has launched this new initiative of assisting undergraduate students with their final year projects.

ICT R&D Fund said that it aims to promote, enable, and encourage R&D culture at the grassroots level by funding relatively high caliber R&D projects initiated by students under the mentorship of faculty members in chartered universities of both Public and Private sector.

Through this initiative the Fund will provide financial support to selected Final Year Projects (FYP) of undergraduate students enrolled in ICT related disciplines like Computer Science & Information Technology, Electrical, Electronics, Telecom, Computer, and Software Engineering.

The funding under this initiative covers the cost of purchase of equipment and other miscellaneous costs associated with the development of the prototype or working model. A maximum of up to Rs 75,000/- can be provided to a single Final Year Project (FYP).

Recommendations for currently ongoing Final Year Projects (FYP) should be submitted to the Fund through the respective Head of Departments on the prescribed Recommendation Form. You can get the form downloaded from here.

All the recommendation received will be evaluated by a committee of experts constituted by the Fund. Final decision pertaining to the selection of any project for this initiative shall be taken by the National ICT R&D Fund.

The last date for submission of forms to National ICT R&D Fund is March 31, 2012.
