Understanding how Students join Pillar Science

How can I become a Research Scholar?

Ask your Professor if you are working on SRC funded research. Even if you are not directly funded by SRC, you are eligible to be an SRC Research Scholar if you are working on any SRC-funded research.

Why do I want to become a Research Scholar?

Participation as an SRC Research Scholar provides both education and career benefits. Industry liaisons guide SRC funded faculty, which means your research is deeply connected with the real world and you get access to industry insights. SRC member companies look to the Research Scholars Program as a talent pipeline, so Scholars are frequently on the shortlist for company internships and even hires. Explore more benefits.
