DBT Star College Scheme – USPC Prelims

Star College Scheme:
  • The Star College Scheme was initiated by the Department of Biotechnology(DBT) in 2008 to support colleges and universities offering undergraduate education to improve science teaching across the country.
  • Aim: To improve critical thinking and encourage ‘hands on’ experimental science at undergraduate level in basic science subjects. It also aims to encourage more students to take up higher education in science.
  • Support under the scheme: Through this scheme the DBT identifies colleges with potential for excellence and provides support for developing infrastructure for academics and laboratory activities. This support is in turn expected to invigorate teaching and provide unique exposure of students to experimental science.
