In an attempt to enhance the participation of Women Scientists in Biotechnology Research, the Department of Biotechnology announces the Call for Proposals under the Bio-CARe scheme for women scientists.  The programme is targeted towards Career Development of employed/unemployed women scientists.  The scheme is open for all areas of Life Science / biology (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 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 after a career break so as to help them undertake independent R&D projects.
