The Management of STET Women’s College is dedicated to the promotion of scientific
research and propagation of new knowledge to the society and is supporting research in tune
with the concept that the best teaching colleges in the world have a strong research component.
Relevant research projects provide a good opportunity for teachers to keep abreast of
developments in their respective fields of competence and interest. Often, however, funds needed
for research are not easily available, or have been applied for funding agencies, but there is a
delay in obtaining these funds.
Sometimes there is need to support preliminary work that is
expected to grow into a sizeable research project which will be submitted to an external funding
For this research seed money is needed. In view of this and to promote the
research culture among the faculty and help them in their scientific pursuit, the College
Management has instituted a Seed Money Fund. Seed Money Scheme (SMS), sponsored by
STET Women’s College, Sundarakottai, Mannargudi, aims to promote research and innovation
amongst faculty. Seed Money Grants Program supports selected scholarly and creative activities
Seed funding under this scheme is to be used to initiate/continue the research work of
the faculty. The main objective of the scheme is to accelerate the possibility to receive the
financial support from external agencies in future.
