DBT Star College Scheme:

 

The Star College Scheme was initiated by DBT in 2008 to support colleges and universities offering undergraduate education to improve science teaching across the country. This Scheme was launched for improving critical thinking and encouraging ‘hands on’ experimental science at undergraduate level in basic science subjects. The scheme was initiated envisioning that it shall encourage more students to take up higher education in science. Through this scheme the Department identifies colleges with potential for excellence and provides support for developing infrastructure for academics and laboratory activities.

 

DBT Star College Scheme at St. Francis College for Women:

 

At the 12th meeting of task force on star college scheme, the committee recommended the proposal with financial support for eight Science Departments of St. Francis College for Women with a total project cost of Rs. 158.51 lakhs for three years.
