Direct Admission to IISc and IISERs
KVPY Fellows get direct admission to:
- Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. This is the institute which the top ranked KVPY fellows opt for. While IISc also accepts admission through JEE, admission to the undergraduate courses is much simpler for KVPY fellows.
- 7 Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERs) at Pune, Kolkata, Bhopal, Mohali, Thiruvanathapuram, Tirupati and Berhampur
However, the sad aspect is that most of the students do not think of pursuing a career in research and look for a stable career in engineering or medical. Hence, these institutes do not receive as many applications as one would expect them to.
Exclusive Invite to Vijyoshi Camp
The Vijyoshi Camp is organised every year in the honour of KVPY fellows. Students get a chance to meet great researchers, scientists, experts and scholars from different fields of science and medicine.

Research Project Experience and Guidance
KVPY fellows are required to do a research project under the mentorship of a scholar or scientist. This gives them a first-hand experience and insights into the life of researchers.
