About Dr A S RAO AWARDS COUNCIL (ASRAC):
The main aim in establishing the Council was to propagate the ideals of late Dr AS Rao (1914-2003), by way of spotting talent in young children, and nurturing them. One way to do this was by conducting a competitive Science Talent Search Examination (STSE) every year for High School students of 9th class and 10th class from all over the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Besides the annual STSE, Workshops are conducted for top students (in STSE) of 9th class giving an opportunity to them to get experience in conducting science lab experiments and projects and interact with senior Faculty. Special Capacity Enhancement Programs are organized for secondary school teachers so that they can excel as teachers.

All these activities are planned and implemented with the help of service-oriented academics, employees of ECIL and philanthropists. The Council functions with a meagre corpus fundraised out of life memberships, and with the altruistic work of several volunteers.
