Internship at Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA (10 May to 30 July 2019)

“Be an exception, not an example that has always been my motivation in life. To begin on that note, I have spent my summer in the Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School affiliated to Harvard University. These 10 weeks were an enriching experience for me where I not only learned many new techniques and developed my skill set but also learned to love science for its uniqueness all over once again. This internship journey taught me many things, gave me some good friends, taught me humbleness and how to live a life full of happiness in this competitive world by loving what you do. It taught me to derive pleasure from the smallest success and how to overcome the biggest of failures with a positive mindset. My professor at Harvard offered me a hefty amount of stipend per month and apart from that, I had also applied for the Travel Research Internship Scheme of IIT Roorkee for which I was selected and awarded an amount of Rupees One lakh.

I am grateful to the institute to have provided me with the sum and I hope that I have been able to utilize the sum efficiently. The amount which I received was sufficient for the entire period of my internship and all the expenses were borne from that monetary support that I had received”

Internship at Sorbonne University, Institute of Mathematics of Jussieu-Paris Rive Gauche, Paris, France (15 May to 15 July 2019)

“Since I plan to do my Ph.D. abroad, the internship that I attended at Sorbonne University, Paris during the summer of 2019 was a much-needed experience for me. It gave me copious exposure to the real research work, the way mathematics is taught in France and explore Operator Algebras which is my area of interest. It also gave me a chance to interact with various other professors and research scholars of the research group and attend lectures by eminent mathematicians specific to my interest. This internship has made me aware of the current research going on in Mathematics and the universities and professors working on the related topics. It also gave enough idea about the topic I could be choosing for my master's thesis and research proposal. I was selected for Charpak Lab Scholarship for the same and my internship was not funded by the university (since it was only for 2 months). Since the living expenses in Paris is extremely expensive, the scholarship amount just covered the accommodation and food expenses. The gap in the total expenditure and the scholarship amount was still huge for me to afford for an internship. Then, I got to know about the Partial Support provided by DORA for International Internship in universities with top 50 world rankings. I applied for the same and it got approved. Almost 99% of all my expenses have been covered because of it.

I am extremely thankful to the Dean of Resources and Alumni, IIT Roorkee for providing financial support for the same because of which I was able to go for an extremely important research project. I hope this experience would give a great boost to my career”

Internship at CNRS, France (9 May to 16 July 2019)

“I learned a lot from this internship, and it has undoubtedly improved and shaped me as a researcher. I'm sure this internship will help me pursue higher studies in planetary sciences. For this, I would sincerely like to thank the Dean of Resources and Alumni Affairs (DORA) for providing me with adequate travel funding under the Travel Support Scheme for International Research Internships (TSS-IRI). Most of the times, it is unviable for undergraduate students to spend thousands of rupees on internships. Thus, such funding schemes prove to be beneficial in emboldening students to pursue foreign internships and not letting the financial factor hinder scientific growth. I hope this scheme encourages other students who wish to engage in research work in international universities and laboratories in the future.

Internship at Centre national de la recherche scientifique, CNRS, France during 11 May 2019 To 30 July 2019

"For the summer of 2019, I was, fortunately, offered an internship under Dr Elham Kashefi at LIP6, one of the largest Computer Science laboratory of Paris. For a student interested to work in the domain of Quantum Computing and Cryptography, this was a dream come true. However, I was initially sceptical to accept the offer due to the fact that the French government only allowed a monthly stipend of around 550 euros which was not sufficient to live in one of the most expensive cities in the world, Paris. It was at this time that I came to know about the Partial Support scheme for International Research Internships launched recently by the institute. I applied for the support under this scheme and thanks to the cooperative, hassle-free procedure, not only was I provided with a support of 1 Lakh rupees, but also half of it was paid to me in advance. This was a much-needed boost for me to pursue the unconventional path of research in an emerging and promising field as Quantum Information Science.

I am very thankful to the DORA office for supporting me to pursue my research internship and have a beautiful and informative experience at one of the most beautiful places on Earth."

Internship at National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Tsukuba, Ibaraki, JAPAN during 03 June 2019 to 02 August 2019

"I am thankful to the DORA office for recommending my application for travel support for internship. The travel support helped me a lot as I was able to avail the allowance for the International flight, Visa fee, Insurance fee, Domestic travel, etc. The host country was Japan and cost of living was approx 2.5 times than that of India. Given that the food, utility and miscellaneous charges were high, the given stipend for daily expenses was insufficient for covering up the flight and other travel expenses, hence I was able to manage my finances without compromising on the experience that one can gain in a foreign country. The work at the NIMS (Japan) was related to the analysis of the fracture surface on Ti-6Al-4V alloy made using SLM. The results and target work was completed well in time. The work alloted to me is a part of bigger project and it might find a section in journal paper once the project is finished. The takeaways were working in a well equipped laboratory and to operate a Scanning Electron Microscope which on my own. I attended various talks, seminars and institution tours which helped me to acknowledge the facilities and apparatus used there to conduct research.

Overall the experience was very nice and I am very thankful to the institute and DORA office for this."

Internship at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Industrial Engineering and Management, Stockholm, Sweden during 24 May to 30 July 2019

"Having a background in research, in my department of Metallurgy and Material Science, I wanted to experience and gain more insight, by doing a research in my field outside India. Not only the process and landing up with a research opportunity outside India can be a little taxing but also sometimes a bit expensive. Being from a middle-class family, to fund my Travel and Living expenses even partially, outside India, was not possible. I received an offer in my field of interest, in KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. I applied to the Travel Support in my college that could cover up the remaining amount, apart from the partial funding from the host institute. My application for partial funding was accepted and was financially helped to full cost. My research basically was to Physical Model and Using Machine Learning to predict the Continuous Cooling Curve for Low alloy Steels.

 

I am grateful to my college to fund me and other students who lack the capacity to fund their research abroad, but has the enthusiasm and inclination to do research in their respective fields of interest. Though my research was still in an inchoate stage, and I may not land up with a publication anytime soon, but the experience was a great learning experience not only in my research but also in my personal life. Thanking You."
