What are the methods to support students at various levels in the country?

President of the Iranian national science foundation described the methods to support students at various levels.

According to the public relations and information center of the Vice-Presidency for science and technology affairs, Nosratollah Zargham, president of the Iranian national science foundation, stated: helping the development of science and technology is an issue that is significantly emphasized in the country and is also the mission of the foundation. However, the supports of the foundation are not limited to the present and must be sustainable forever, which requires expertise and proper planning.

Zargham pointed out the foundation not only supports the researchers across nation, but also supports non-resident Iranian researchers. In this regard, he continued: the foundation has demonstrated special programs for each strata. However, there are some capacities in the country that require more enhancement. In addition, there needs to be the essential foundation for increase of their abilities in development of science and technology in the country.

He also expressed: children, students, university students, professors, researchers and technologists are people that can be directly supported by the foundation. In addition, parents of children, kindergarten instructors and teachers can indirectly benefit from the supports of the foundation. These supports play a significant role in creating a sophisticated society since there are different attitudes toward science and technology and their roles in the community. Eventually, development of science and technology has turned into a demand of the society members and scientific centers have become interesting to the public.

Zargham mentioned the formation of education, research, technology and innovation ecosystem in the country, expressing: today, the country is moving toward the accurate understanding of the ecosystem of science, research technology and innovation among academics, politics, managers and planners of the country, which is definitely right. However, simultaneous efforts must be made to recognize the importance of this issue by the society.

President of the Iranian national science foundation mentioned the support of BSc, MSc and PhD students and faculty members, asserting: there are various support programs for students at each level and scientific associations will be supported as well. In this regard, we have aimed to train research methods with simple language and promote idea making, creativity, entrepreneurship and collective studies. Moreover, MSc students can cooperate with professors in approved projects.

Zargham continued: PhD candidates can benefit from the supports of the foundation for their doctoral thesis in addition to cooperation with professors in approved projects. Moreover, those able to achieve doctoral degree from 100 valid universities of the world can use the grant of the foundation if their project is among the prioritized research projects of the country. This activity of the foundation is in fact in continuation of the valuable activities of the Vice-Presidency in attracting PhD graduates from 100 top universities of the world.

 

Faculty member of Tehran University also emphasized: professors with various degrees can also benefit from the supports of the foundation for their activities, which will be provided in the form of performing research projects, research grants and supervision of doctoral and post-doctoral dissertations. Moreover, scholars of the country can be supported by assigning positions and research grants.
