The governments of the United States of America (through the Department of State) and India
(through the Department of Science & Technology) have established the United States – India
Science & Technology Endowment Fund (USISTEF) for the promotion of joint activities that would
lead to innovation and technopreneurship through the application of science and technology. The
Endowment Fund activities are implemented and administered through the bi-national Indo-US
Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF).
The fund aims to select and financially support promising joint U.S.-India entrepreneurial initiatives
that address the theme of “commercializing technologies for societal impact” through a competitive grants program. Executive summaries can be submitted by bi-national teams of entrepreneurs before Aug. 14. For more information visit www.usistef.org or www.indousstf.org.
