There are TWO steps in the application procedure. Candidates must first register by entering their name and e-mail address in the appropriate registration boxes below (Step-1). A password will then be automatically sent to the candidate's e-mail address. The candidate should then proceed to Step-2, entering both the e-mail address and the password in order to fill out the Online Application Form. Besides academic information, the Application Form requires the names and e-mail addresses of two referees who have agreed to provide a confidential assessment of the applicant. When the form is submitted, e-mails will be automatically sent to the two referees requesting them to fill and submit the online Confidential Assessment Form. Note that only online applications and referee reports will be accepted; we will not accept postal or e-mail applications.

The referees should be persons with whom you have interacted academically over the last few years (e.g. your teachers, project guides, etc.) and who can give objective views of your research potential. We emphasize that each applicant must submit his/her Application Form before the referee fills the Confidential Assessment Form; this is because the referees will only be invited to fill the Confidential Assessment Form after the Application Form has been submitted.

In case of any problems with filling out the online forms, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page. If this does not resolve the issue, please e-mail the Coordinator at vsrp@ncra.tifr.res.in . Based on the application material and referee assessments, a subset of the candidates will be short-listed and invited to participate in the Visiting Students' Research Programme.

The VSRP-2019 website will be open for applications from January 4, 2019, and the last date to receive the online application forms is Friday, February 15, 2019. Selected students will be informed by e-mail by the first week of March, 2019.
