The Infosys Prize endeavors to elevate the prestige of science and research in India and inspire young Indians to choose a vocation in research. This is awarded for stellar contributions in six fields: Engineering and Computer Science, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences and Social Sciences. Infosys Foundation has signed  four Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences – Tata institute of Fundamental Research (ICTS – TIFR) Bangalore, to support research and mentoring activities.
1. The Foundation has signed an MoU for the grant of INR 4 crore towards the Infosys Foundation excellence program at ICTS. Through this grant the Infosys Foundation ICTS Visitor Fellowship will provide for 25 academics to travel to India each year for the ICTS programs and will also provide a travel grant through the Infosys Foundation ICTS Excellence Grant for 20 academic members of ICTS to travel abroad. The grants aim at creating learning experiences for students to participate in academic activities abroad and forge partnerships with renowned educational institutions across the world.
2. The second MoU is for a grant of INR 7.5 crore for organizing lecture series by distinguished experts internationally and within India. This collaboration is aimed at creating an environment to exchange ideas and explore cutting edge research in basic sciences and mathematics.
