The Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana is a continuous national program of fellowship in Fundamental Sciences, started and funded by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, to draw remarkably highly aggravated students for doing basic science courses and research in science.
The main aim of the program is to find out students with talent and ability for research; help them assess their academic prospective; support them to start research careers in Science, and make sure the growth of the best technical minds for research and growth in the country.

The ad for the Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana Fellowship is posted on all the national dailies generally on the Second Sunday of July and Technology Day each year.

Selection of the students is done from those learning in XI standard to first year of any undergraduate Program in Fundamental Sciences that is B.Sc./B.S./B.Stat./B.Math./Int.

Special groups or Committees are fixed at IISc to monitor the applications and carry out an aptitude test at different centers in the country. On the basis of performance in the ability test, shortlisted students are called for an interview that is the last stage of the selection process. For getting a fellowship, both ability test and interview marks are taken into consideration.
