“This whole journey, along with me has been a journey of many important people in my life, whom I am always indebted to. This is a very fortunate and rare opportunity that a regular Indian student can have in his life.” -Soumyadeep Datta, SN Bose Scholar 2019

S.N. Bose Scholars

The S.N. Bose Program for Scholars was named in honor of Satyendra Nath Bose ( 1894-1974), an Indian physicist whose seminal theories in quantum mechanics led to the development of the Bose Einstein statistics and to the creation of the field of quantum statistics. The S.N. Bose Program provides opportunities to Indian students to undertake research at U.S. based universities in the Summer 2018 for a period of 10-12 weeks.


Currently the SN Bose Program is on hold and therefore not accepting participants. Please check the IUSSTF website for more program information or please email
