ISRO opens registration for Young Scientist Programme
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has opened the registration for recently launched Young Scientist Programme.
The programme also referred to as “YUva VIgyani KAryakram” (Yuvika) is aimed at imparting basic knowledge on Space Technology, Space Science and Space Applications to the younger ones with the intent of arousing their interest in the emerging areas of Space activities. The Yuvika programme aims to catch them young by providing residential training of around two weeks duration during the summer holidays.

The selection for the programme is based on their performance from 8th Std marks. Those who have just finished 9th standard (in the academic year 2018-19) and waiting to join 10th standard (or those who have started 10th Std just now) are eligible for the programme and selection is based on both academic performance and extracurricular activities with special preference given to students from rural areas.
