We are pleased to inform you that the following students have been selected for the GAABESU research awards in the current academic year (2011-12). The goals of this new category of award are i) to encourage research works among the undergraduate students and ii) to recognize the outstanding researchers irrespective of their student status (whether under-graduate and post-graduate). We believe that the monetary award will provide incentives & create an atmosphere where more students will undertake research works as a part of the academic program. We hope that they will present and/or publish the research works in the national and international journals or professional events. This will not only bring professional recognition to them but also to our Alma Mater. The students are:
