SPARK Fellowship Program 2024, The Good Food Institute (GFI)

Smart proteins, globally known as alternative
proteins, are food ingredients and products
produced from plants or animal cells or through fermentation. These innovative foods are designed to taste the same as or better than conventional animal products while
costing the same or less.
With their inherent adaptability and eagerness
to learn, students are crucial in filling talent
gaps in the smart protein sector. Carrying out
research through fellowship programs at the
university level is a pivotal way in which students can upskill themselves, learn more about smart protein, contribute to smart protein R&D, and proceed to become key
players in this burgeoning industry.

The Good Food Institute India (GFI India) is the central expert organization, thought leader, and convening body in the Indian alternative protein or smart protein sector. As part of an international network of organizations with partners in the U.S., Brazil, Europe, Israel, and Asia Pacific, GFI India is on a mission to build a secure, sustainable, and just global food future. With unique insight across science, business, and policy, we are using the power of food innovation and markets to accelerate the
transition of our food system toward alternative proteins. In building the sector from the ground up in India, we aim to establish a model for its growth all across the developing world.


GFI India’s Smart Protein Advanced Research & Knowledge (SPARK) Fellowship program aims at encouraging postgraduate students from diverse scientific disciplines like food technology, biotechnology & bioengineering, microbiology, and chemical engineering to work on industry-relevant applied research topics contributing to innovative discoveries in the smart protein sector.

Under the SPARK fellowship, students will have the opportunity to conduct fully-funded, lab-based research for a six-month timeframe at premier Indian R&D institutions under the guidance of expert faculty mentors. This program will also facilitate translational research collaborations and commercialization of outcomes by onboarding relevant industry partners from our network.


The consolidated research grant of INR
1,00,000 and a monthly student stipend of
INR 10,000 will cover consumables required
for project implementation and relocation or
accommodation costs, respectively. Progress
will be regularly monitored by GFI India’s
Scientists for the duration of the research
project. Following the successful completion
of the research project, GFI India will award
the students with a Certificate of Completion
to recognize their participation and
contribution to smart protein research under
the SPARK fellowship program.

Students currently pursuing a postgraduate
degree (M.Sc, M.Tech, final year of dual
degree programs, or similar) in one of these
key scientific disciplines are encouraged to
apply. Individuals who have recently
completed their post-graduation in any
relevant disciplines and are looking for early-
career research opportunities are also
welcome to apply.

Applications will be screened based on the
fulfillment of eligibility criteria, academic
credentials, demonstrated research experience
and skillset, and mission alignment. Selected
candidates will undergo an interview process
from which 3 meritorious candidates (1 studentper research area mentioned above) will be selected for the research fellowship.
