The Centre offers summer fellowships for two months to bright undergraduate and MSc students (renewable for a second year for selected students). This programme has proved to be popular and competitive; each year, about 5000 students from all over India apply for the 120 fellowships awarded. Fifty fellowships are supported by the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, fifteen by the Rajiv Gandhi Institute for Contemporary Studies, New Delhi, and the rest by the Centre. Students are placed with research groups at the Centre or with scientists else where in India. They are paid travel expenses and a monthly stipend of Rs. 5000.

This is one of the highly acclaimed programmes of the Centre and the students are very appreciative of the benefits, enabling them to get inspired towards scientific research during early stage of their education. With the aim to make this programme globally visible by making it accessible to student in the developing countries of South Asia and Africa, the Third World Academy of Sciences-Regional Office for Central and South Asia and JNCASR have come together to expose these young undergraduates to the research culture in advanced areas of science and engineering by working with peers in many institutions within the country.
Ten meritorious students are selected from across the country for each of these programme. As part of this, students undertake work with faculty members of the Centre on small projects during their mid-semester breaks. They also attend special lectures and seminars at the Centre. On completion of their training which lasts for 3 summers, they are issued a Diploma certificate in Chemistry or Biology as the case may be.
