The goal of this programme, which launched in 2007, is to train the next generation of biomedical technology innovators in India. This highly competitive programme is directed to Indian citizens who have an interest in the invention and early-stage development of new biomedical technologies. The SIB Fellowship Programme is centred at Stanford and in New Delhi and administered as a collaboration between Stanford University, the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in partnership with the Indo-US Science & Technology Forum (IUSSTF).
Fellows receive tuition, stipend support, and international travel arrangements. Over the course of the programme, approximately half of the fellows’ time will be spent at Stanford University and the other half in India. Fellows work in a multidisciplinary team joining other young innovators with a combination of engineering, medical and business backgrounds.
