Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) conducts annual summer programmes in which talented students are introduced to research activities in the areas of Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics.

The selected students are expected to work on a research project under the supervision of a TIFR researcher. 

The VSRP is conducted at the Colaba campus of TIFR during the period mid-May to early July each year. The National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA), Pune, also conducts an independent VSRP every summer, with an application deadline in the middle of February. To obtain information about NCRA's VSRP, please visit NCRA's website http://www.ncra.tifr.res.in or write to vsrp@ncra.tifr.res.in

TIFR pursues basic research primarily in Astronomical, Biological, Chemical and Physical Sciences, Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science and Systems Science (including Communications & Applied Probability) and runs a graduate program leading to a Ph.D. in all these areas.

We encourage applications from motivated students who have completed at least two years of undergraduate coursework in science and engineering fields.
