Dear Applicant,

I thank you for your interest in the IISER Pune Summer Student Programme 2023. We received over 5000 applications for about 45 positions. You will appreciate that it was not an easy task to select the small subset of successful candidates out of all the excellent applications we received.

Please note that not receiving an email indicates non-selection.

Even if you have not been successful this time around I hope you will keep IISER Pune in mind while planning a future in research. We have integrated PhD (MS-PhD) and regular PhD programmes for students motivated by a career in research.

Wishing you all the best in your future endeavours
