The 14 selected students are from different departments/programs and varying degree levels of study. The topics of research cover a wide array of subjects depending on the student and the host institution. Some students will focus on scientific topics such as the human immune system or genome sequencing to help better understand the microbial world, others will focus on issues that face transportation and infrastructure, and still others will focus on AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning. At the conclusion of their internships, the students provide the Foundation with a one-page report highlighting the results of their research and the applicability to real world problems.
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 USA would like to congratulate and wish the 14 scholarship awardees the best of luck and success in their upcoming internships!
