Senior Scholarship Program
The Senior Scholarship program of JBNSTS is the core program that has been functioning since the birth of the institution in 1958. Originally , just a scholarship providing scheme, it has expanded to a holistic pedagogic ideology for the development of creative students of science. This has been made possible by systematic research on educational needs of gifted individuals.

Senior Bigyani Kanya Medha Britti :
The under-representation and disparity of women in STEM fields result from discrimination, deep-rooted social biases and inaccessibility to quality science education throughout different stages of their academic career. In the history of all the Nobel Prizes in the sciences, there have been 20 female laureates of the more than 600 prizes awarded in physiology or medicine, chemistry and physics.

These ratios reflect gender disparity and inequality that exists in STEM field globally. Women account for a meagre percentage in tertiary education in science compared to their male counterparts. There is a noticeable gap between girls pursuing science in high school standards in India which casts a bleak spell in the society in terms of gender equality in academia and STEM workforce.

To bridge the gap, JBNSTS has initiated a unique program titled Senior Bigyani Kanya Medha Britti under the financial support of Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of West Bengal encouraging the meritorious girl students of our state to pursue science in their higher education. The program identifies the prospective awardees on the basis of JBNSTS Senior Talent Science Test. All the eligible girl students willing to partake in the program are required to apply for the Senior Talent Science Test.
