Satyendra Nath Bose ( 1894-1974) was an Indian physicist whose seminal theories in quantum mechanics prompted a collaboration with Einstein, and led to the development of the Bose Einstein statistics and to the creation of the field of quantum statistics. The theoretical physicist Paul Dirac named the class of particles that obey the Bose Einstein statistics, bosons, in honor of the Indian scientist. The S.N. Bose Scholars exchange is a scientific research reciprocation program between U.S. and Indian academic labs, primarily for sciences other than biology, such as the physical sciences, mathematics, engineering, quantitative social sciences, oceanic, atmospheric and astronomical sciences. Research is conducted in the collaborating country’s academic labs, for a period of 8-10 weeks in the summer, from May to July. Approximately two candidates are chosen to represent each field of research, and a total of about 60 applicants will be selected to study abroad in a lab which is recognized in its field of study. American undergraduates and Indian students enrolled in a Bachelors or Masters program are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is already closed for the summer 2015 program, and applications will be accepted again starting fall 2015 for the summer 2016 program.
