POLICY RESEARCH BOOTCAMP

Research is a tool that gives individuals a chance to look at problems in great detail and with multifarious perspectives. A person equipped with the skills to research has the power to mould the world in a way they want to.

Unfortunately, the stakeholders in the education sector don’t facilitate or expect the students to be versed in academic research.

To improve this situation, Project uP aims to target the grass-root level of the problem and equip the young minds of our country with precise tools and working knowledge of research.

The Research Training Bootcamp aims to equip the students with precise tools and working knowledge of academic research, from research ideation to citations and from presenting to getting published in renowned journals all around the world.

Learning from our scholars who have presented their ideas in international conferences, this program will give the students a chance to dive into the world of research. Added benefits of having publications under your name include ease of admissions in top universities around the globe, stronger CV and better career prospects.

All the funds generated will be put to use for the education of children in Urban Slums, wipe the tears off their faces and extend the hope of a viable future.
