This programme was introduced in 1983 to identify and encourage promising young scientists. The Associateship is tenable for a maximum period of five years until the age of 35, or a minimum period of three years. During this period Associates can attend meetings of the Academy and receive free two Academy journals of their choice. They are not required to pay any dues to the Academy. The total number of Associates is limited to 100.
Nominations proposing candidates below the age of 35 years can be submitted by Fellows to reach the Academy office by 30 April. For selection to the Associateship during 2013, candidates born after 31-12-1978 are eligible to be nominated. The nomination should include the candidate's curriculum vitae, list of publications, a brief statement highlighting the research contributions, and one set of reprints of the five most important papers of the candidate.
