Description:       The Spirit of Ramanujan STEM Talent Initiative is an outreach effort to find and encourage undiscovered science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) talent in the United States and worldwide. (The initiative is named for Srinivasa Ramanujan, a self-taught mathematical genius of the early 20th century whose formulas are still studied today.) The program is intended for promising individuals who excel in the STEM subjects but lack traditional institutional support through grants and mentorship opportunities. Funding through this program provides grants to participate in established research programs or to engage in individual research with an approved sponsor.

Eligible applicants are students worldwide. There are no specific restrictions on age or location. The application link is available from the website and requires registration and a login to access. Required materials include a curriculum vitae, transcripts (unofficial accepted), personal statement, proposed plan if selected, and two letters of reference submitted separately. Complete applications must be submitted through the online system.
