The scheme enables meritorious faculty to interact at international level Conferences, Seminars, and Symposia. Teachers from AICTE approved Technical Institutions / University departments are eligible for this grant.
The saying, “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page,” aptly reflects the enrichment associated with travel. The benefits of travel are manifold; it broadens one’s horizon and rejuvenates one’s thought process. And if the objective is supported by an academic motive, travelling is an excellent opportunity to share knowledge and research ideas, to network and to renew professional acquaintances.
The All India Council for Technical Education encourages faculty members in its aegis to travel to international venues to present research papers at conferences, to participate in workshops and seminars, or even to gain exposure to the academic systems and best practices prevalent there. The Council’s Travel Grants Scheme is an initiative designed to ensure that Indian technical educators are at par with their global counterparts and reinforces the concept that “Knowledge is beyond boundaries”.
