Awards   Buti Young Scientist Award   Sholapurwala Awards   PSSI Poster Awards   PSSI Oral Awards   Parvez Guzdar AWard  





 

Professor Bimla Buti has declared (at the PSSI GBM, 2011) that the award amount for the Buti Young Scientist Award will be enhanced to Rs.10,000/- from the year 2012 onwards.


 

 

To encourage young scientists, ‘Buti Young Scientist Award' has been instituted by Buti Foundation. The award consists of a Certificate of Merit and a cash prize of Rs.10,000. On behalf of Buti Foundation, Plasma Science Society of India (PSSI) at its Annual National Conference will present this award to the selected young researcher for the best presentation.

 

The first award was given at PLASMA 2004 (PSSI Conference) held at Bundelkhand University at Jhansi in December 2004. Looking at the great enthusiasm of the young participants for competing for this award, President, Buti Foundation has decided to have TWO such awards from 2005 onwards.

 

One award will be exclusively for applicants from Universities and Colleges and the second one will be open to all young scientists. This has been done keeping in mind that the scientists at Universities and Colleges do not have facilities comparable to the ones at Research Institutes. However there will be no compromise on the quality of the presentation. In case, the presentations are not to the mark, no award will be given that year.

Who can apply ?


Buti Foundation Young Scientist Award is open to Graduate students working towards their Ph.D. degrees and to fresh Ph.D.s with less than 2 years post-doctoral experience. Maximum age limit for competing for this award is 35 years. This award of Rs. 10000 is for the best presentation with really good contents to be presented at the annual PSSI meeting.

 

The applicant should be a Life Member of PSSI.

 

The applicant should NOT have presented the same material in previous editions of the Buti Award.


Guidelines (Please read carefully before applying)


1. One-page abstract, full manuscript of the work carried out by the student (maximum 5 A4 size pages), and CV should be emailed to buti.awards@gmail.com on or before 30th September. Entries received after this date will not be considered. 

 

2. The abstract should be approved by the student's thesis advisor.

 

3. The Scientific programme committee of PSSI will do an initial screening to select 5-6 applicants who will be asked to make an ORAL presentation at the special session during the Plasma Conference.

 

3. Maximum age limit is 35 years.

 

4. Time given will usually be 15+5 minutes, but if a situation arises that would necessitate rescheduling of the presentation time, the applicants would be informed prior to the start of the session and they would need to complete their talk within the stipulated time.

 

5. Other than scientific quality of the work being presented, the panel of judges will also seriously consider the presentation skills (visual as well as vocal), time management, clarity of presentation as well as defence of the presented data while choosing a awardee.

 

6. The panel of judges may choose NOT to award the prize in case a suitable candidate is not found.

 

7. The decision of the panel of Judges would be final and binding.

 

8. Membership in PSSI is mandatory.
