KVPY Fellowship Program

Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) is a national-level scholarship/fellowship program conducted to promote and encourage highly driven students to opt for research careers in basic science courses. It is initiated and funded by the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India. Students who qualify KVPY, known as the KVPY fellows, receive a monthly scholarship up to pre-Ph. D. level.

The KVPY exam is administered by the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc). Candidates who qualify for the aptitude round are called for a face-to-face interview. About 3000 out of one lakh aspirants are awarded the KVPY fellowship.

What is KVPY Fellowship?

KVPY fellow is entitled to receive the monthly stipend pre Ph.D. level or 5 years, whichever is earlier, given that he maintains the minimum grade every year.

  • From the second year of B.Sc./B.S./B.Math./B.Stat /Integrated M.Sc./Integrated M.S. program, KVPY fellows must participate and perform satisfactorily in a summer program in an academic Institution of National or International repute or a DSIR approved research lab. This is mandatory for the continuation of fellowship.
  • KVPY Fellows are issued an identity card that grants them access to national universities and laboratories that have agreed to extend special privileges like lab facilities, libraries, etc.

KVPY Exam Pattern:

KVPY is conducted in two rounds - Aptitude Test and Personal Interview. While the aptitude round checks a candidate's knowledge across various subjects, the interview process will test knowledge of science and research-related topics.

  • Exam Mode: KVPY is essentially a computer-based test (CBT). So, you can only take it in the online mode.
  • Question Type: Questions are of multiple choice type (MCQs). Each question has an equal weightage of marks. For SA Stream, it is compulsory to attempt all questions. However, for candidates of SB/SX stream, there is an option to attempt any three sections in PART I & any two sections in PART II.
  • Exam Duration: Candidates are given 3 hours to complete the paper.
  • Language for Question Paper: A candidate has the option to take the paper in English or in Hindi.
  • Marking Scheme: The question paper is divided into two parts. In part 1 of the test, candidates are awarded +1 and -¼ for correct and incorrect answers respectively. For part 2, candidates are awarded +2 and -½ for correct and incorrect answers respectively.
