The programme is targetted towards Career Development of employed/ unemployed women scientists. The scheme is open for all areas of Life Science / Biotechnology (including agriculture, veterinary science and medicine). Age limit for application has been kept as 55 to ensure maximum impact. The programme aims at providing support for Research project grants to women- scientists (employed & unemployed) for whom it is the first extramural research grant (Women Scientists who have received any earlier grant from any Government Funding Agency as PI are not eligible). The purpose is to build capacities for women scientists so as to help them undertake independent R&D projects.
