Short Term Studentship

At MGIMS, Sevagram, over the last two decades, efforts have been made to build research aptitude of undergraduate students through provision of a capacity-building workshop followed by participation in community-based group projects under Problem Solving for Better Health initiative (PSBH), and later through astructured research mentorship programme for interested students. These efforts at the institute level succeeded in building a norm, and more and more students came forward to apply for research studentships offered by Indian Council of Medical Research short-term studentship (ICMRSTS) and/or Maharashtra University of Health Sciences short term research grants (MUHS-STRG).

Dr Sushila Nayar Scheme for Promotion of Undergraduate Research

In order to nurture the research culture at MGIMS further, in 2014, an annual award was instituted for undergraduate research named after our founder Director, Dr Sushila Nayar. The award session provides a platform for young researchers to hone their skills in presenting scientific research and prepares them for dissemination of research findings in scientific fora.

Beginning 2017-18, the undergraduate award was made part of a comprehensive approach to build a conducive environment for undergraduate research, known as ‘Scheme for promotion of undergraduate research’, and includes research grants, travel grants, incentives for publication of papers and periodic need based workshops in order to build the research aptitude of undergraduate students.
