IASST encourages talented persons with Ph.D. degree to apply for INSPIRE Faculty/Ramalingaswami Fellow and other National Fellowships such as Woman Scientist Scheme, DBT-PDF and Ramanujan Fellowship programme to the respective funding agencies. However, such applications will be subject to a rigorous screening process in the Institute prior to recommendation to DST, GOI. The pre screening process will take into consideration on the followings for implementation of the programme:
a) The line of research of the aspiring candidate should be in the existing research domains pursued at IASST.

c) Accepted Faculty/Fellow will be allowed to avail foreign visit/training excluding conferences for research exposure and training after completion of one year, as per the provision of the Faculty/Fellowship programme.
e) The accepted Faculty/Fellowship must strictly adhere to all the rules and regulations of IASST and the guidelines of Scheme/Fellowship.
