Women Scientist Scheme - A (DST)

Women Scientists Scheme-A (WOS-A) provides a platform to women scientists and technologists with a career break for pursuing research in basic or applied sciences in frontier areas of science and engineering. The scheme plays a pivotal role in gender mainstreaming as it not only prevents brain drain from the S&T system but also trains and retains women in the system. The scheme initially offers the opportunity to work as bench-level scientists and ultimately opens new avenues for permanent positions in Science & Technology.
